Sam Briggs has posted on her Instagram account that she is encountering difficulties with her visa and that she may be unable to travel to the United States to compete at the CrossFit Games next month.
Briggs says she has “gone through all the proper immigration channels” with no success. She is reaching out to the CrossFit community in hopes that someone has knowledge of visas or can assist in any way. It appears she needs assistance with the Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) to receive permission to travel to the States to compete.
She is asking those who might be able to help to contact Guerra & Johnson, P.C. at BrianJohnson@gjpclaw.com or RAcevedo@gjpclaw.com.
I am writing this post hoping that someone in the CrossFit community can help me … I have run into a problem with the processing of my visa at the U.S. Embassy in London and unfortunately, it will not be adjudicated in time for me to enter the United States to participate in the CrossFit Games this year. I am looking for assistance with Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) with granting me permission under parole in a limited capacity to come to the United States for the sole purpose of participating in the CrossFit Games. I have gone through all of the proper immigration channels, and this how now become an emergency situation for me and I ask that you please assist me with this matter. I understand that this is an extreme request, and I assure that it is not taken lightly. I just hope that someone in the CrossFit community is able to assist me. If you have any questions or seek additional information, please feel free to contact law firm Guerra & Johnson, P.C., at BrianJohnson@gjpclaw.com and/or RAcevedo@gjpclaw.com. Or private message me … Any help and assistance will be greatly appreciated 💪🏻
