Thank you Bridie. Everything is fine now that the crisis is over and everybody is safe. I am already having a great time with my youngest daughter. She is fun. you see, she is 15, the last time I saw her she was 8..... So it is all about discovery and getting to know each other.

Huge hugs..I apologize for my countrymen in Immigration, from the bottom of my heart. This is inexcusable. Enjoy your visit with your younger daughter. .

Now, everything is fine. My older daughter is back in Brazil with family recovering of the horrible experience with US immigration. My youngest one is here, learning about America (and her father). Things are not perfect, but they are good now. Thank you guys for the support.

I'm so sorry to hear about this putting a damper on your visit. I'm sure you'll enjoy being with your 15 year old, but it stinks the other had to go back.

Myrea, no you can't. I am keeping it under control because after all, my other daughter (That is 15 and the last t time I saw her she was 2) is here, but I am really, really angry.

But my other daughter made it well to Rio and is already with her mother. She is with people the love and care for her....

I can't even imagine how furious you must be. I wish there was something we could do to help.

What a mess.

Yes, the youngest one, Stella, is here. Still sleeping (it was a long, long day). The other one just arrived back in Rio de Janeiro an hour ago. I haven't talked to her yet, I am waiting for a call....

This whole thing is pathetic. The only thing that crosses my mind right now (and yes, I am being bitter),, is that why weren't they (Immigration) this "efficient" just before 9/11?

I am really disappointed with the US immigration system right now. It will go away, but right now....

Was your other daughter able to continue on to see you? How are they both doing?

Willam, I can't even imagine what you are going thru. Your daughter must be very scared. It's a shame that with all of the technology the federal govt agencies don't have the ability to communicate with the state agencies. Instead of releasing her into your custody(or your partner's) they return her without her even getting to talk/see you.

Bridie, My daughter is being deported. AS far as I could gather, she will be in a flight back to Brazil at 10:15 pm tonight. Immigration is extremely rude. I found an Angel on United Airlines in Houston that has been very nice and helpful but I will have to wait till she gets back to Brazil to be able to talk to her. You know? Criminals cannot use phones. I am really stressed with this whole thing and makes our country look very badly.

So, today my daughters were arriving here to visit me. The youngest one (15) got here, scared but otherwise fine. The oldest one is being held on immigration at the Houston airport because she committed a crime. She attended High school in the US while under a tourist visa. Although, I went through all the legal shee bang for her arrival then, 2 years ago.

They arrived in Houston at 8 am, after a 14 hours flight, and it is 4 pm and my daughter is still "under custody" or so I imagine because nobody can give information about her situation..

I am very proud of America Costume service because they really averted a big threat to the US. I wonder why weren't they so efficient on Sep 11th.
