I can't travel back to the Philippines due to being 'Blacklisted' because of these federal charges that make me out to be some 'Fugitive' from US justice to the Bureau of Immigration in the Philippines...and until these charges are laid to rest/dropped in Maine USA I don't dare to try and return to what was once my home and family....The only safe option is to get my wife and the kids into the UK to settle with me here.
One day I would like to go back to the Philippines again, but it won't be possible until these US federal charges are dropped.....It won't be safe for me to go anywhere outside of the UK, without the risk of capture and detention while whatever country decides if they will give me to the USA or not....
Hey Gypsy, no fun waiting on medical tests for a loved one. Hopefully no big problem and go from there I guess.
It’s been about fifteen years, but my wife had a similar issue with that TB/ chest X-ray .Everything else was in place except this “failed” test. I need to ask her about it to get my story straight, but the gist of it was Philippine people often will fail it, but it is not cancer/ tumors, it is some type of non problematic genetic spotting on the lungs.
Edit: it turns out she is unsure why she always is positive for TB. It’s probably from immunizations for TB. She remembers getting shots, just not what they were for. From what I’ve read, most are vaccinated for TB, and will test positive for TB because of the vaccination
