Well...here we go with Round III of the most incompetent department of the US Gub'mint I've ever had to deal with... Part II is here: http://asbrand.livejournal.com/233667.html Part I is here: http://asbrand.livejournal.com/231344.html Today (Saturday, October 20th, 2007) we received our THIRD rejection notice for Zhenya & Dasha's immigration paperwork. Reason? Same as the previous 2 times. No, I am not kidding... These jokers *AGAIN* rejected them for not paying the new fees, AND are continuing to consider Dasha (who is 6) as an adult. Even though this last time, they claimed they knew there were lots of rejections for no reason, and they setup a special department with a new mailing address to fix these issues...they didn't bother to read a BIT of the paperwork, and summarily rejected it again for not paying the outrageous new fees. Even though we originally had them in 5 days before the deadline for the old fees to still be good. We got plenty of donations, so we actually have the money. Thankfully. Still, I am going to be writing our Congressman and seeing if he can do anything about this. I am absolutely flabberghasted that these morons are in a position to ruin people's lives, and seemingly don't give a rat's arse. If I weren't such a law-abiding citizen, I'd be taking a trip to Chicago with a baseball bat to 'splain it to 'em... I am thoroughly disgusted.
