The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is set to permanently close its field office in Manila on July 5, which may affect the processing of family visa requests and international adoptions.

The agency already stopped accepting applications since May 31 and gave to the US Embassy in Manila the responsibility for certain limited services it previously provided to Filipinos.

Reuters earlier reported the plan by President Donald Trump’s administration to close down its immigration agency’s overseas locations.

His administration has been working to limit both legal and illegal immigration, such as cuts to the country’s refugee program and intensified vetting of US visa applications, according to the news agency.

The USCIS currently has 23 offices scattered across Latin America, Europe, and Asia.

FILING INSTRUCTIONS

With the planned closure, individuals previously assisted by the immigration agency are told to undertake the following filing instructions:

Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative

File your petition by mail with the USCIS lockbox facility in Chicago. You can find additional filing information on the Form I-130 web page.

USCIS may authorize the Department of State to accept a petition filed with a U.S. Embassy or consulate in some limited circumstances (PDF, 61 KB).

Form I-360, Petition for Amerasian, Widow(er), or Special Immigrant (for Widow(er) petitions only)

If you are a widow(er) of a U.S. citizen, please see the Form I-360, Petition for Amerasian, Widow(er), or Special Immigrant page for the most current filing instructions.

You may file your Form I-360 at the U.S. Embassy or consulate that has jurisdiction over the area where you live.

Form I-131A, Application for Travel Document (Carrier Documentation)

If you are a lawful permanent resident (LPR) who has lost your LPR card and/or re-entry permit and you need travel documentation to return to the U.S., you can file your Form I-131A with any U.S. embassy consular section or USCIS international field office.

Form I-407, Record of Abandonment of Lawful Permanent Resident Status

Submit your Form I-407 to the nearest USCIS international field office.

In rare circumstances, a U.S. embassy or U.S. consulate may allow you to submit a Form I-407 in person if you need immediate proof that you have abandoned your lawful permanent resident status.

Form I-730, Refugee/Asylee Relative Petition

You must file your petition with the Nebraska or Texas Service Center, depending on where the petitioner lives in the United States.

For beneficiary interviews/processing, contact the U.S. embassy consular section in the country where the beneficiary resides.

Form N-400, Application for Naturalization

If you are a member of the U.S. military stationed overseas, please see the Form N-400, Application for Naturalization, page or call 800-375-5283 for the most current filing instructions. USCIS will forward the application to the appropriate international field office for processing. For qualified children of active-duty service members stationed abroad, the proper form to file is the N-600K, Application for Citizenship and Issuance of Certificate Under Section 322.

Filipino World War II Veterans Parole (FWVP) Program

You must file your petition with the USCIS lockbox facility in Chicago. If your petition is accepted, it will be forwarded to a USCIS service center for adjudication. If the service center conditionally approves your application, it will forward it to the Department of State’s (DOS) National Visa Center (NVC). The NVC will transfer your case to the USCIS office or U.S. embassy or consulate abroad where your beneficiary relative will be interviewed.

COA auditor na trumabaho sa DOH Audit report inatake sa puso, patay!

Isang state auditor na nasa likod ng kontrobersiyal na Department of Health (DOH) audit report ang pumanaw matapos atakehin sa puso, ayon sa isang dating opisyal ng Commission on Audit (COA).

Sa Facebook post, sinabi ni dating COA commissioner Heidi Mendoza, na posibleng pumanaw ang dati niyang katrabaho na si lawyer Jake Cimafranca dahil sa stress sa pagtatrabaho sa COA.

“Today I weep for my former colleague. A COA-UN auditor who just died of a heart attack. He is the auditor behind the DoH report. Stress can kill, please let us offer a minute of prayer!” saad ni Mendoza nitong Martes.

“Sa Team Leader ng DoH, Jake, may the heaven open up and receive your soul together with all our prayers for the country and the institution we served! Condolences to your family and the COA family, especially the Resident Audit Team in the Department of Health,” patuloy niya.

Sa isa pang post sinabi ni Mendoza na tumulong din si Cimafranca sa pagbalangkas sa audit report kaugnay naman sa Department of Information and Communications Technology.

“As if not enough Jake, the Team Leader of DoH, is also the one behind the DICT audit report. Audit is life! And I’m sure you will be at peace because you have lived a life meant to serve many! My prayers and gratitude,” wika ni Mendoza.

Matatandaang pinagsabihan ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte ang COA na tigilan ang paglalabas ng audit report sa mga ahensya, na tila lumilitaw na ninakaw ng isang ahensya ang pondo at nag-iiwan ng impresyon sa publiko na mayroon itong bahid ng korapsyon.

Sinabi ng Pangulo na hayaan munang matapos ang mga proyekto ng mga ito bago gawin ang taunang auditing process.

Nag-ugat ito matapos isapubliko ng COA ang nakitang “deficiencies” sa paggamit ng Department of Health sa COVID-19 pondo nitong nasa P67 bilyon.

Why Do Most Filipinos Support President Rodrigo Duterte Till Now?

Why Do Most Filipinos Support President Rodrigo Duterte Till Now? - Alon Calinao Dy

This is a question I always ask to myself. Why do many Filipinos still support the very simple and truly honest Mayor Rodrigo Duterte? Every time my bashers told me, “Mr. Alon Calinao Dy, you’re a Dutertard!” It simply means a fanatic of the President. Well, I truly appreciate his strong commitment for the Filipinos and for this country.

Like most common Filipinos, I admired President Duterte for being simple, brave and honest leader of this country. He risked his life for the Filipinos who supported him and for making Philippines a better place for everyone and by battling against oligarchs and powerful families who controlled illegal drugs, criminalities and rampant corruption in this country. Who would do these courageous acts? only President Duterte!

This is a wonderful quote of former President Ferdinand Marcos when he was still alive, “no matter how strong and dedicated a leader may be, he must find root and strength amongst the people. He alone cannot save the nation. He may guide, he may set the tone, he may dedicate himself and risk his life, but only the people may save themselves.”

I love this popular quote because it just shows that even though we have an outstanding president right now who cares for the Filipino people, it’s not enough without lasting peace and unity among ourselves. President Duterte is one person, he may be the powerful person in the country, but his real power comes from Filipinos who voted and supported him.

Duterte can inspire everyone to do good things. But it’s up for every Filipino if they’re willing to change for the better. And no matter how good you are to people, it doesn’t matter to them and there will be always people criticizing you. That’s why this quote is true “you can’t please everyone.” But all you have to do is continue what you think is right for the country.

I just don’t understand why the opposition HATE president Duterte so much. HATE is such a strong word that destroys us all. I asked myself, why would you hate a man who risked his life for the good of this country? Why would you hate a simple and honest person like the president? And, why would you hate a man who fought illegal drugs, criminalities and corruption?

If only social media existed before, truth could save us all than the lies spread faster on some TV networks. The moment I watched some TV news in the Philippines who had spreading ‘fake news’ and propaganda against the president, I stopped watching the news as it only divided Filipinos politically.

The truth is, The Real Change is in you…The Real Power is in your hands. Altogether You can change the Nation. Sad but inevitable truth, President Duterte will soon retire and out of the office. But after many years from now, aside from other excellent jobs, Filipinos will always remember him for his ‘Build, Build, Build,’ project as could become his legacy for sure.
