We live near Houston, Texas. Our daughter lived with my husband and me until two weeks ago, when she got an apartment with her boyfriend. They have been dating since July of last year, and were planning to marry in about another year. He is from Tanzania, and came here on a student visa. They asked my husband to sponsor him for a green card, and he did. Problem is, last week I discovered that in fact, they got married last October and the only people they told were his family. All this time, she lived with us, and the only time she went to his house was when she was invited, because one day she showed up unannounced and he got very mad at her. She married him for love, and is also quite brain washed I'm sorry to say. She believes it was all her idea. She told me that his mom altered the date on his birth certificate so he could get the visa, and he worked at a golf club and other jobs for over a year without a work permit. When I report him, do you think that he will be deported? I have to find a way to help her in spite of herself. There is evidence that he is cheating, and it's only a marriage of convenience to him. They got the apartment right before their interview with immigration, and they still have nothing in the apartment. He has disconnected the computer so she cannot see what he's up to, and she thinks it is broken and he fixes it every night. She is not normally so dense. I am afraid for her safety, and he's also been pressuring her to become pregnant, which she won't do willingly. can someone please help by telling me how to report him.
Duh sasa hata jina halijatajwa....sijui tutamshitua vipi mshikaji alale mbele...Well, I spent hours on the phone to ICE and USCIS. After hearing my story, the first one said to call the other one, and vice-versa! But an officer at USCIS did help me figure out that my husband is not really the sponsor. He is a joint sponsor, and is responsible for him on a monetary level only. Evidentally, they (my daughter and son-in-law) neglected to tell us that. So I called ICE again to report him, and the officer told me that if he already has his green card, immigration won't do anything to him for the wrong date on his birth certificate because he is already here, and they won't do anything about him working without a work permit, because now he has a green card. She did tell me that my husband should write a letter asap to immigration, stating that he intends to withdraw his support stating the reasons why, and he will most likely be removed as the supporter. As it is, we are financially responsible for him. Thank ya'll so much for your suggestions - they really helped. I still believe that he is 27, and my daughter thinks he is 24. I wonder if you use a fake age on the application for a marriage license if it nullifies the marriage?
