I plan to contact local congressman and senators. Can a congressman legally provide a supporting letter for immigration purposes, for example "I am of local and national interest"? (I understand and assuming that I provide convincing evidence to congressman and they are willing to write one for me)
If they do provide a support letter is it safe to attach it to the petition or would such recommendation have negative consequences with USCIS?
We have used congressional letters when the congress person knew the person filing.
Is my answer "BEST ANSWER" and/or "HELPFUL"? If so, please acknowledge and mark it so. Mr. Smith has 25 years of successful U.S. immigration law experience with cases just like yours. Still, his response is general in nature, as all the facts are unknown to him, and cannot be construed as legal advice. Please retain immigration counsel to analyze your particular situation in order to receive specific advice. Specific answers requires knowledge of all the pertinent facts of your case. Any answers offered by Mr. Smith on Avvo are of a general nature only, and does not create an attorney-client relationship.
