    inspection" a.k.a. "EWIs" are treated very differently from a legal standpoint.  EWIs (pronounced ee-weez) are ineligible to adjust status ("adjusting status" means jumping from non-immigrant to LPR status; whereas "changing status" refers to jumping from one temporary status to another) except in very limited situations, such as in the case of Special Immigrant Juveniles.  Marriage to a USC will NOT cure EWI status.  As I posted above, 245(i) had a provision that would allow and EWI to cure that.  I am not sure what they intend to to with EWIs this time around, but my money is on 245(i) model.  Making EVERYONE to go home to consular process seems and then return seems truly onerous to me.
