PLEASE HELP! DEMAND JUSTICE FROM THE BUREAU OF IMMIGRATION OF THE PHILLIPPINES!LET MY HUSBAND STAY IN THE PHILLIPPINES WITH HIS FAMILY!
My husband,Randall.was screwed by the Phillippine BOI(Bureau of Immigration).DEMAND JUSTICE FROM THE BUREAU OF IMMIGRATION OF THE PHILLIPPINES!He initially applied on December 15,2011 for a permanent visa,which first requires a 1 year probationary period.When we went to renew it,which was for 5 years,after which time my husband would have become a legal resident with no more visa worries,my husband and myself, found out exactly what had happened.My husband is on Social Security Disability,the result of a auto accident(He was rear-ended by another driver)and receives a monthly check from the Social Security,our sole means of support.A Mr.Jun Angeles,who then worked for the BOI,told myself and my husband,that we had all of the required paperwork and that he would call us when the card was ready.He never called us.We went to Cagayan de Oro,where we had filled out the paperwork,and found out that the BOI had moved.When we got to their new location,Mr.Angeles told us beforehand that he had lost my husband's file,and that they were looking for it.Now when we got to the BOI,the BOI said that Mr.Angeles didn't work for them anymore,and that my husband was to file a new application,and that he was responsible for overstaying his visa and would be subject to fines and possible deportation if he didn't pay the fine.My husband and myself have been trying to remedy this problem by writing to the Commissioner personally to allow him to stay here in the Phillippines,and be free of any fines or penalties,and to be allowed to be a legal resident because he is married to a Filipino woman.The letter came today.It said that because my husband had not paid any fines,fees,or penalties for overstaying his visa,and even though he was married to a Filipina woman,our request was DENIED,because he had no proof that he had even applied for his 5 year residency visa,even though he had applied,but Mr.Jun Angeles had (Conviently)lost his paperwork,even though Mr.Jun Angeles was entrusted with it.It didn't matter to the BOI that Mr.Angeles had once,worked for them or that he was the one entrusted with my husband's paperwork,my husband was still the one responsible for the 5 year residency visa.We have traveled to Cagayan de Oro,twice,to get this matter straightened out,and have sent numerous e-mails to the BOI(My husband has proof of the e-mails on our computer).We have had no luck in convincing the Commissioner of the BOI,nor have we had any luck in finding the money,that it will take to be able to pay for the fines,fees,and penalties,first,before he can apply for his 1 year residency visa(Probationary),and then apply for the 5 year permanent resident visa,afterward which he shall become a legal resident of the Phillippines and won't need any visa whatsoever.The money,that will be collected,in his bank account,which is for Social Security and is named Anelyn Bergerud for Randall Bergerud ( I am his Social Security payee)is where the money will be deposited.If we do not get the entire funding that we are seeking,we will use the money to start the visa process,and then worry about it later.The problem is that the BOI wants the money for the fees,fines and penalties first before we can even apply for the 1 year probationary visa,which then afterward he can apply for the 5 year permanent resident visa,and then after that,he does not have to worry about any visa problems ever again.Another problem that we are having,is that the BOI will not allow us to pay in monthly installment payments,they want it all in cash,upfront,before he can even apply for a 1 year permanent probationary visa(Prelude to the 5 year permanent resident visa).We cannot afford to do this as he is on Social Security Disability,(He receive a check from the U.S.Govt.,every month)and it takes everything that he gets,just to be able to pay the electric bills,Internet bills,etc.,and food to feed his self.This is why we have to turn to crowdfunding,in order for him to be able to stay in the Phillippines,along with his family.We have a 14 year old daughter,who is presently in high school,and a 13 year old son,who is also in high school.They need my husband's help with their homework and supervision in the home.I am his 36 year old wife,and I love him and my children,with all of my heart.If he is unable to pay for overstaying,he will be deported back to America(He cannot even afford the plane ticket to get there).Please help my husband continue to stay in the Phillippines,with his family,(That he so dearly loves and respects).We are a GOD fearing family and very Christian,also.We do not live beyond our means(We still only have a motorcycle for transportation,a Honda 125,which is 5 years old),and our food consists of eating beans with rice,noodles,and sometimes we eat chicken or pork with rice,when we can afford to).We are not rich,and do not have the money to be able to afford, the money that it requires for the BOI.If my husband is deported,he will have to change his payee,and this will leave us with nothing to live on,it will leave us desitute,and myself(His wife),and two children will also go hungry,for lack of having no food to eat.He will also be torn from his family for the rest of his life because although he will be allowed back into this country, he will have to pay for his roundtrip airline ticket(Which he cannot afford,and will probably never be able to afford,$1500.00)and then start the visa process all over again.Please let my husband stay in the Phillippines with his family!This is why I am turning to crowdfunding,for finance.Please tell your friends,neighbors and anyone else that you can think of,of our predicament,and hopefully they,or someone else that they know of, will be able to help us.We are willing to take any amount that is available for contribution.I would like to be able to send to everyone who contributes,a handwritten letter of thanks and appreciation,but we live in Tangub City,Phillippines and each letter cost us .60 cents(American)to send,and we are very sorry,but we really cannot afford to do so at this time.You will all be in our prayers,and WE thank you for taking the time to read this.Thank you very much,Anelyn Bergerud.
