At minimum, I think I have these rights, if I have an immigrant wife:
- The local police should not be seizing my property, and refusing to return it, if I didn’t rape her, beat her, or whatever else she’s accusing me of doing.
- The magistrates should not be granting restraining orders against me, if I didn’t rape her, beat her, or whatever else she’s accusing me of doing.
I also think I have these rights:
- If she makes false statements to the cops (and/or to USCIS), accusing me of crimes I didn’t commit, then she should be getting kicked out of the country, because that is, after all, moral turpitude on her part.
I would also say:
- If she said, before she ever got here, that she was fine with being the breadwinner, and me being the houseband; and then before getting her conditions on residency removed, she divorced me because, even though my mom and I were financially supporting her (as required by the I-864), she wanted me to have a job, she should arguably get kicked out of the country, because it’s questionable whether the married in good faith, and it’s possible she was at fault for the failure of the marriage. I mean, that is, after all, abandonment; and I would question whether there was good cause for it, under the circumstances.
If people aren’t willing to give me any reasonable rights, as a U.S. citizen husband of an immigrant wife, then I would say, (1) I want to take away others’ right to marry, and (2) I want to shut down the immigration system.
