Newark CA – October 19,2011 – For those who followed the TVU issues closely, many students were advised to file for Reinstatement when they presumably lost their status. While this advice was good based on the law, it seems suddenly that USCIS is issuing a bunch of Notice of Intent to Deny (NOID) to many of the poor victims of the defunct TVU. For your information a NOID is not a request for evidence (RFE) and from experience the likelihood of denial is higher than a RFE. It is totally unfair to make the students go through such a trauma again. They simply do not deserve it. As we have advocated from the beginning, the TVU students were merely victims of a broken system. It is not a matter of law anymore but a matter of justice.
The US government has actually encouraged TVU students to apply for reinstatement, issuing NOIDs sends a wrong message to those who had regain trust in the system. We urge USCIS and the US government to take a humanitarian approach to such cases, and allow the students to have a second chance in the United States. Our law firm also calls on the supports of the respective governments of the students to protect the interest of their citizens.
