Hello, I am James. I will be helping you today. I do not get a salary here. But just like you, I want to get credit for doing my job. You are the only person who can help me get credit before leaving this site today. So please do not forget to do that by giving me a positive rating with 3 or more stars or any of the smiling faces.
Also, if you want me to be your personal immigration or TSA Expert, just write “FOR JAMES" at the beginning of any future, new questions, and I will be happy to help you as your personal Expert.
First, I want to tell you that I am an immigration attorney with more than 10 years of experience in the immigration context. Keep that in mind while we work together.
ANSWER: No, absolutely not. This will affect your visa in no way whatsoever. The only way your visa would be affected is if you are charged and convicted of a crime of a serious nature. You did nothing wrong and this was not a deportable offense, or one that would make you inadmissible.
I understand your frustration. But TSA is on high alert for two reasons: the events that have unfolded worldwide over the last few weeks, and the fact that it is the holiday season and there are a lot of travelers. It is precautionary.
I am so sorry for the inconvenience you rightfully experienced. But again, that comfort in knowing this has absolutely no affect on your via whatsoever.
I know this can be confusing. If you want a 30 minute phone call to discuss this or anything else, let me know. I can send you an offer for that.
I hope I have answered your questions. Kindly rate my customer service with a positive rating so I get credit for doing my job. This is very important. You can do that by giving me 3 or more stars, or any of the smiling faces. And you can keep asking questions even after you have given a rating.
REMINDER: You are not rating the state of the law or the outcome of your situation, which I cannot control. You are rating my customer service. Believe me that I always want to give you good news. But if the outcome is not what you wanted, blame the government and the law, not me. I am only a messenger.
Negative ratings are reserved for Professionals who are rude or unprofessional. Giving me a negative rating does not help you get a different answer or outcome. So do not give a negative rating if you need more help, or if I misunderstood your question. Instead click REPLY so I can continue to assist you.
A BONUS is appreciated, if you feel I've earned it.
If you have questions in the future, write “FOR JAMES" in the question and I will be your personal Expert in this category.
