Dear Editor,

I have a question or perhaps an observation of INS in that they are able to operate by a different set of standards then they are trying to enforce. They maintain that you must always be completely honest and forthright with them. I happen to agree with them I have always been cooperative and honest with them. Honesty is always the best policy. But I wonder why they are not honest with the people they are dealing with. The people whose lives they hold in their hands who are relying on the information they received from INS. The INS sends out notices with processing times on it that they know when they print them are not true. My I-485 adjustment application notice was sent to me saying that the processing time was 240-365 days. When I asked an information officer about this they said, "well don't believe that. It will take much longer than that." Indeed it is taking more than double that time. But I wonder what would happen to me if I deliberately sent them a form with wrong information on it. How am I supposed to trust and respect this organization when I cannot trust what they are telling me. I believe lying begets lying and if you'll lie to me then why don't I lie back to you.
