The immigration law provides a long list of persons who either are prohibited from entering the United States or may be removed from the United States. The inadmissibility and deportability grounds can be described as falling into seven general categories: health-related, economic, criminal, security and foreign policy, immigration violations and others.
The issue of inadmissibility may arise first when a person appears before a U.S. consul overseas seeking permission to come to the United States—usually a request for an immigrant or nonimmigrant visa or a parole document. See 8 USC §§1182(d)(5), 1229b; INA §§212(d)(5), 240A(b)(4)(A). It may arise again when the person arrives at the US port of entry seeking admission. At this point, the person is subject to inspection, whereby a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer considers whether the person is admissible. There are a number of different outcomes to the inspection process—the person can be detained, returned to his or her home country quickly under expedited removal, granted deferred inspection, paroled, or admitted.
There are many forms of waivers to inadmissibility that are available for intending immigrants. Contact us to discuss your situation and see if any of the waivers may be available to you.
