Q: Can immigration officer offend or be rude on green card interview?
A: The policy is that the Immigration Officers should not be rude on a green card interview, and generally they are not. There have been instances, however, when the officers were rude. One way to avoid it is to have an immigration attorney present during the interview.

A: According to the Adjudicator's Field Manual, USCIS officials must adhere to a certain standard of professionalism, which prohibits derogatory comments or belittling behavior.
A: Well, my experience is that immigration officers can be rude. However, as a practical matter, it may not be worth it to contest them on this point, particularly if your case has some vulnerabilities in it. Because where an immigration officer feels offended by your rebuke, he may consider auditing your file heavily. I would let it slide off your back unless he really damaged you. Good luck. 732-200-0779, www.visabrothers.com
