As stated earlier, my name and social security number was run through the E-Verify system. I am an illegal immigrant, currently awaiting a status change. However, like most Americans I had to find a way to provide for my family in the meantime. I am currently married to a US citizen. Currently, I have no status and am illegal. On the I-9 form, I put that I am a Citizen. My interview for my permanent resident green card is coming up soon through marriage. I am wondering will the USCIS agent have access to the E-Verify findings? I am very worried about this.
Thank you for your help.Hello, Thank you all for your responses. My question is would USCIS have access to the information from the E-Verify mismatch however? This is what concerns me the most. Thank you.

My colleagues are correct. Your false claim to US Citizenship, even if you thought you had no other option, can be a PERMANENT BAR/BLOCK to you being allowed to ever live in the US legally.
RUN, don't walk to an immigration attorney's office.

This is a very serious situation. You should have an competent and experienced immigration attorney at the interview. A false claim to U. S. Citizenship for an immigration benefit can result in a permanent ban on permanent resident status. However, the USCIS has taken a position that the claim must be undertaken in a certain way.
An experienced immigration attorney can explain the interview process. You can hope for the best. Again, if you go, alone, and misinterpret the questions, you can be permanent banned from lawful immigration. The best thing to do is to enter into the interview prepared and with a competent immigration attorney. The Chicago District Office uses a certain amount of discretion in asking questions. However, you must truthfully answer the question and some get confused with the question asked, because they don't pay attention or understand how to answer.
