BREAKING: Frustrated US Citizen married to Kenyan woman petitions President Trump to stop wife’s imminent deportation

I have a 3 yrs old son who needs his mother and I need my Loving wife close to me. We love each other and we both love our son to death. We take our marriage vows very seriously and nobody will separate us.

After struggling for close to four years in an effort to legalize his wife’s status, US Citizen Bruce Pritchet is now reaching out to well wishers to sign a petition to President Donald J Trump in order to save his marriage.

His wife, Salome Pritchett – with whom they have a 3-year old son – is facing imminent deportation. The petition, it appears, is the only option left, after going through a lengthy and expensive process, leaving the family exhausted. This comes at a time when cases of Kenyans being deported from the US on what analysts say are flimsy grounds, are on the rise.

Here is the story as told by Mr Pritchett:

My name is Bruce Pritchett, a US citizen by birth in the State of Missouri. I got married to my wife Salome Pritchett, a Kenyan citizen on August 8, 2015 in Missouri. My wife has been legally living in the United states for 7 years. She’s hardworking and pays Taxes in this country.

We have a 3 yr old son together, who was born in Illinois. We filed a petition to help my wife Salome to adjust her legal status through marriage and get her a Green Card, in May 2017. We had an immigration interview in December 2017. During the interview the immigration officer asked my wife why she “married a white man,” which, to me, was racial profiling, violation of human right to marry and discrimination.

She also demanded that my wife revoke her then legal status without telling us if she had approved the Green Card or not. Her questions and demands to revoke my wife’s then legal status before approval of her green card made us including our lawyer very suspicious of her intentions.

Our lawyer advised my wife not to revoke her legal status because that would make her illegal in United States if the officer doesn’t grant the green card on the spot. Therefore, leaving my wife vulnerable for deportation, and I could not let that happen.

Following the advice of our lawyer not to revoke my wife’s legal status, the officer sent us home promising that all she needed was a signature from her boss to send us the approval notice of my wife’s green card in 7 days, but it never happened.
Together with our lawyers, we spent the whole year of 2018 following-up and requesting the US Citizenship and Immigration Services to send us the promised approval notice in vain. Our lawyers did everything possible to get them wrap up my petition and give my wife a Green Card but all fell on deaf years of U.S Immigration Services.

In March 2019 our lawyers advised us to sue the USCIS in St. Louis, Missouri, to stop the delay of our petition and have them grant us the Green Card. They got mad and sent a notice of Intent to Revoke the approved petition that they had okeyed back in 2017 and never sent the approval form to us.

They gave us 30 days to send more documentation to prove that my wife was free to marry me, which we did. We even got the Certificate of No Impediment to marriage from Kenya, my wife’s country of origin, stating that my wife is free to marry me and other documentation required to prove our marriage is legal, including copy of Kenyan laws Marriage Act.

To our surprise, the immigration officer handling our case said that the “Kenyan marriage laws are not in place.”
Although the Officer acknowledged that my wife’s “Family Ties In The United States Are Positive Factors,” she went ahead to deny my petition for my wife’s Green Card.

I demand immigration Justice for my wife because the USCIS did not even take time to review all the legal documents they asked for as prove that my marriage to Salome is legitimate. Our lawyers said the immigration officer was not following the law concerning our case.

That means she’s only out to destroy families and deport people for no reason.

We have less than 30 days file an appeal against this unfair and unjust treatment by USCIS which is very expensive for us. Why on earth should we go through this?
I have a 3 yrs old son who needs his mother and I need my Loving wife close to me. We love each other and we both love our son to death. We take our marriage vows very seriously and nobody will separate us.

The pain and agony of growing without a mother or your wife is excruciating. Separating families is wrong and should not be tolerated. Its Cruel and unAmerican.
For this reason, I do not want my son to grow-up without his mother around. I want my family together, Because family’s belong together.

Please help me stop this cruel immigration officer from trying to deport my wife, destroying my marriage and my 3yr old son’s life. Because what USCIS is doing is wicked, unethical, unprofessional and inhuman, it is cruel and un-American!

Since we started this case back in 2017, the USCIS in St. Louis has wasted so much time on our petition and made us go through so much heartache, stress and mental anguish. We’ve spent so much money that has drained all our savings just to have our family live together in peace.




But the USCIS is out to destroy my marriage and my family. Please help me fight for Justice  for my wife and family, and get the US Citizenship and Immigration Services approve my wife’s Green Card and stop the heartache, pain and mental anguish my family is suffering right now. Create a safe path to Citizenship for my wife and keep my family together.

Please sign our petition. Help me keep my family together.
Your support will be highly appreciated.

Thank you.
God Bless you,
Bruce Pritchett.

HOPE: 36 year old man who scored D+ in Kenya now has 5 degrees from US universities!

Published

on

BY BMJ MURIITHI

They say when one door is shut somewhere, a window – or even another door – is open someplace else. The story of US-based Mwangi Mukami reads like fiction.

In his own words, the Kenya education system wrote him off when he got a D+ in his high school exams (KCSE). However, upon landing in the US (where, by and large, people are judged by the content of their character without laying too much emphasis on past failures or mistakes), he embarked on a journey to fulfil his educational dreams.

He went back to school and, as we speak, he has just received his fifth degree at the age of 36. Many Kenyans in US can can relate to Mukami’s story. It resonates because many of them – or their friends and family members – had lost hope in Kenya but the United States offered them a second chance. Now they have their well earned degrees which they would otherwise have only dreamt of. We must add a rider here that although there is no doubt that  opportunities abound in the US, you still have to work very hard to earn those degrees.

Here is Mr Mwangi Mukami  in his own words:

BY MWANGI MUKAMI
I have just received my graduate diploma from UC Berkeley. 20+ years ago, Kenya’s education system wrote me off as a failure because I had a D+.
I remember vividly saying to my peers that I wanted to be a policymaker or an attorney. Their response was a burst of collective laughter and sneer. But here I am—five degrees at 36. I hope God grants me a long life, success, and wealth to open doors of opportunities for more D+ students.
For the misfits, the rejected, and the oppressed. Congratulations to my mom. The degree is a reflection of her tenacity. I am grateful and honored to have wonderful brothers and sisters who support and trust my ability to achieve: Elizabeth Mwariri Keyym Peters, Lissa Irvenne Kayte Khulgal Jeph Collins.

I couldn’t have done it without the encouragement of Kay Ventura, Carol McCrary, and Betty Mc Crary Alarms, And I can’t forget Elizabeth Woods for the many nights she drove to take me to school.

Jim Foti for the countless recommendation letters Joe Beasley for initial grant to attend a community college.

I am because of all these people and I couldn’t be so grateful and honored to have them in my life. For Nick, the next step is a JD.
