Entered on F1 Visa from Morgan State University. Attended Morgan from January 2009 through May 2012.
Moved to Houston to apply to International Christian Institute. I was accepted, and had SEVIS transferred to International Christian Institute in Houston to start in August 2012.
In the meantime I applied to several other colleges in case transfer didn’t work out with International Christian Institute, I would have option to go to (BCCC, CCBC). I sent BCCC admission application through the mail to Ms. Wanda Chaney (postmarked and dated 7/27/12, but The Application was never processed until I came back to inquire in September). I never received an I-20 or an acceptance letter from International Christian Institute.
So I moved to Houston. I was at a friend’s house, which belonged to friend’s uncle, who suddenly (about last week of August) did not want me to live in the house. I tried to manage, contacting other friends who lived near there, trying to move. ICI had no dorms.
So I came back to Baltimore on 8/31/12 to attempt to enroll at BCCC. Realized they had not processed my application. I was told he had missed acceptance deadline. I tried to return to ICI- contacted them by email, I told ICI that having difficulty attending classes at ICI. Then ICI told them that since missed 3 weeks of class, they would terminate I-20. Asked them if they would be willing to reinstatement if I returned. They said they do not support reinstatement at ICI. They sent me emails about these issues and notifying I was out of status.
I followed up between 9/17/12 (when we sent response to app via email) and 1/25/13 to finalize application. Received acceptance and registered for classes on 1/25/13.
On January 23, 2013 morning 6:00 am few ICE agent showed up at home they took me to the immigration office at Baltimore MD. I was processed at the Immigration Office and then I was kept in detention for 4 hours and after that I was released and the Immigration officer told be that I will receive a court date in mail which I still have not received. But they told me that if I don't receive a court date then on April 9, 2013 I will have to appear at the Immigration office at Baltimore MD. And I did reported to immigration on 4/9/12, now I have been given another date (august 13, 2013) to report to the immigration office. And I have also received a court date for Master Hearing on June 03, 2013.
I have received an I-20 from BCCC on 4/4/12, but I have been attending classes full time since 1/27/12. I have submitted a reinstatement application with USCIS and have not heard anything from then neither received any receipt no.
Besides, I do have a girlfriend and she is a green card holder, she will be due for her citizenship on June 2014. I am trying to know if she also could be any help.
My visa reinstatement gets denied what other options will I have to stay in USA at-least till June 2014.
Thank you so much for your time and attention.
