Robin has been trying to come to America for 11 years.

Today on The Blue Republican, Robin rants about his latest experience in the nightmare that is negotiating the American LEGAL immigration system. Turns out the Department of Homeland Security has lost all of his important biometric information … and as a result, his citizenship is delayed. Worst of all, he’d never have discovered it unless he had asked out of his own volition. This is just one step that is completely typical of the Kafkaesque system that is American immigration.

At the beginning of this year, he began the last stage – a supposedly administrative formality of naturalization on coming to America.

But in dealing with the DHS, nothing is ever that simple…

    Just because you mentioned the horror of these same people being in charge of healthcare… I work in the individual sales office for a large health insurance company. Though I don’t work for the Health Exchange/Individual Marketplace, I do have to help people update their applications there, and I hear a lot of feedback. It’s a hot mess. The same kinds of things that happened to you in information being lost, happen to customers all the time. First of all they are inundated with messages and info from the marketplace, and then they get multiple requests to send in information they have already submitted three times before. I hear this everyday. Every single day. And you can be sure, the powers that be ARE making it impossible to avoid the marketplace, or have a certain income bracket and still be able to afford health coverage at all. Robin, I knew the ACA was going to be a mess, but I did not anticipate it’s heinousness until I took this job. There are no words.
