Your question is a good one. The concept of redeployment entails that your funds remain at risk while your petition is pending with USCIS. The loss of your funds is in fact indicative of that very risk. While it may not have an effect on your petition, it certainly raises questions as to whether you were fully informed as to why the redeployment suggested to you was suitable for your investment objectives. You should consult with a securities attorney, along with your immigration counsel, to fully understand what options there are to recover funds and preserve your immigration benefits.
