被捕、公众负担、中共党员
- pjiang -

毛主席说:“犯了错误不要紧,改了就是好同志。”

在 I-485 的填表中,有一问:
  "1. Have you ever, in or outside the United States:
    b. been arrested, cited, charged, indicted, fined or imprisoned for breaking or violating any law or ordinance, excluding traffic violations?"
在回答这个问题时,有两个要点得注意:
1) 只要是被捕过,不问原因,也不计后果;
2) 只要是被捕过,不管是在美国,还是其它地方。

对于点一,如:
有的男同学冲动之下,扇了太太一耳光。后来法官也没有深究。
有的小同学在商店里看到了好的玩意儿,就揣进了兜里。法官念其年幼,就把材料都封了。
尽管如此,这两位同学在这里还是要答 "Yes". 虽然会有面试,总比因 mispresentation 而被拒了好。
虽然有过被捕的记录,并不意味着 I-485 就批不了,公民转不成。

法庭的文件说 discharge 了,还要答 Yes 吗?
-- 无论是 conditional discharge 还是 absolute discharge,都不改变曾经被捕过的事实。
我的 charge 被 dismiss 掉了,还要答 Yes 吗?
-- Yes.
我被告知 arrest record 已经 expunge 了,也要答 Yes 吗?
-- Yes.

对于点二,在美国以外的地方有了记录,FBI 能否查到?
虽然没有确切的根据,窃以为是查不到的。因为国与国的这种普通的信息没有共享,除非是你的行为太出格了,比如说遭到了国际刑警组织的通缉。

有的同学担心呀,那天超速拿了张罚单,或是停车过时。
--这些都在 "excluding" 中。


I-485 中还有类似的一问:
  "2. Have you received public assistance in the United States ..."
有位女同学就愁上了,生小宝宝的时候用过 WIC, 会不会就因此成为了公众负担?
没有。这位女同学都不必答 'Yes', 所有象这样的临时性的补助。

下面所列的都不算(不限于此):
  Medicaid, CHIP, prenatal care
  Food Stamps, WIC, school meals

原则有二:
  1) 没有接受现金 CASH WELFARE(如 SSI,TANF);
  2) 非长期 long-term
就不是 public charge.

另外,依附人即使接受了现金福利,但该福利不是家庭的唯一收入,亦不算。


对于追求上进的同学来说,还有头疼的一问,那就是
  "List your present and past membership in or affiliation with every ..."
填不填中共党员呢?
除非是确信你能蒙混过关,否则还是如实填写为好。党员不是被拒的理由,完全没有必要茶饭不思,大不了是面试,或是说明已不参加组织活动了。
    In July XXXX, the last year of my college education, the English Department of the University recommended me for Communist Party Membership. I decided to accept the invitation to join the Communist Party. I was awarded CP membership because I had been one of the best students in my class throughout my college life. In China, enrollment by CP is a reward for good performance, as well as for excellence in extra curricular activities and helping other students. CP membership makes it easier for a fresh graduate to get a good job in state-owned enterprises. So, in all my classmates’ minds, the recommendation for CP membership was not only recognition of excellent performance, but also would be a big help for job hunting after graduation. It was with the hope for a better job, that I accepted the recommendation and joined the CP before I left the University.

    I have never been an active member of the CP, worked on any committee, attended any meetings or endorsed Chinese CP policies. In fact, I have just barely maintained the membership.During the first 3 years after my graduation my membership dues were deducted automatically from my pay check. After 1999, I stopped paying the CP membership dues and was thus been deprived of the membership 8 years ago.


上面谈的这几点,不仅是针对 I-485 的,也同样适用于申请公民。

螺丝螺帽 回复 悄悄话 中共党员

When I apply for I-485, I forgot it.
When I apply 公民, I did say "Yes".
During the 公民 interview, the officer asked me so many questions in any angle for a long, long time. Finally, I smile to him say, I have so long years not go back to China, my father did cancel everything for me. I don't have contact with 中共党员 for so long, blabla... I believe he truth me and approved me...

I have been in US since 1997, I got green card in 2004 and 公民 in 2007.

This is my case, maybe it will be useful???
