Inside the Stokes Unit: Proving Love to USCIS

"There was the husband who knew how many stepkids he had but didn’t remember their names.  And there was the guy who swore he slept with his wife every night, but was in the dark about the oxygen tank by her bedside.  Immigration officers in New York City’s Stokes unit — who spend their
days interrogating couples applying for green cards based on marriage —
have heard it all.  “Life is stranger than fiction,” officer Barbara Felska told the Daily News, which got an up-close look at the unit." – Erica Pearson, N.Y. Daily News, May 20, 2012.
