Since Cayne is a Canadian citizen, in the US on a visa, he needs to carry his passport with him. His passport expires in a couple of weeks, his visa is good until next year. This means, he needs to "renew" his passport. (Passport Canada doesn't actually renew passports...they re-issue them every five years.)

He was in Ottawa last weekend, and tried to renew his passport, but they wanted to keep his passport. Well, he can't come back into the US without his passport. He can't work without his passport. USCIS has actually shown up at his work place and asked for his papers.

So this morning, one of my tasks has been to spend much time on the phone with the Canadian consulate in New York City, trying to manuver through their menus and talk to a real person. I finally declared him a Canadian in Distress, and used that number, to at least get to a live person.

They'll call us back and tell us what we need to do.

Ayyy... so annoying. Dad ended up calling a congress staffer to allow him to keep Mom.
