USCIS Office in Ketchikan
By Betty Constuble


August 03, 2010

I so agree with Mr. Jose Garcia's letter. We very much need a USCIS office in Ketchikan.

My son in law immigrated from England on a fiance visa a little over a year ago. He married my daughter and then applied for his green card and work permit. All these things took a very long time to come through. And in the process he had to make two trips to Juneau for biometrics and interviews. It would have been so much easier to have seen someone in Ketchikan. At one time you could, there was an immigrtion office here. But it was closed. People trying to be legal immigrants should not have to travel and spend needed money to meet the requirements. Please consider putting a UCIS office in Ketchikan again.
