Question Uncle filed for immigration, Can I get visit Visa?

Do the chances of getting US visa (b1/b2) decrease if an immigration petition is filed on your behalf by a relative who holds a US nationality? I have elective scheduled in January

My uncle (fatherís brother) filed an immigration petition on my father behalf using the family based (F) visa and this immigration applies to Brothers and sisters of United States citizens and their spouses and minor children. I was a minor(less than 21 years) when the petition was filed but considering I am not a minor anymore. Does this immigration petition apply to me??

Technically your name is still in the USCIS but let me whisper in your ears, the visa officer that you are going to meet does not have access to USCIS records so he or she will not know and therefore do not tell them that you have immigration proceedings under your name.

If you tell them, your chances of getting the visa will be significantly impacted negatively.
