US Embassy Refuses Visa for Emily's Dad

I attended the US Embassy London last week for a 9am interview for a visa to travel for the forthcoming trial in October and also to exercise my court ordered visitation with Emily.

After being kept waiting for 7 1/2 hours (yes that's right, seven and a half hours!) I was interviewed at 4.30pm.

My request for a visa to go see Emily was denied as I had been rendered ineligible under s3A(2)INA as I had "harassed the American citizen mother" - I produced my court orders for access and the findings of the Florida court that I had not been harassing or domestically violent together with the order finding the mother in criminal contempt for her behaviour as well as the false police reports filed by Captain Alan Osowski, his deposition and my telephone records (see earlier posts). I was advised that "attorneys in Washington DC had evaluated the orders" and I was still not allowed a visa for court ordered access.

My application for a visa to go for the trial required "administrative processing" and I received the reply today - I am ineligible as I cannot demonstrate sufficient connection to the United Kingdom and I am a presumed immigrant to the United States.

The letter from the US Embassy London and my response are below - enjoy !

How absolutely, fundamentaly absurd! Why would they say something like that!!! I smell an excuse just to keep you out of the US. There's such a huge disconnect from what they're saying and what is reality.

..this is simply ridiculous!

It makes me furious to see that authorities do not wish to act uppon illegal and violent action against children.

At this point, its not even relevant whether you're the perfect father or not... it's simply a matter of reverting the wrong doing that was Emilys kidnapping.

For what its worth... we're in the same boat.

wow! what a sad state of affairs. This country's administration is such a joke. Here it is a concern parent who wants the best for his child having to worry about the safety of his baby! They will rather allow students in our country who is looking to terrorize people and blow places us, but you cant make sure your child is being properly taken care of. This is ridiculous!
