Our Canadian professional client was alleged to have committed entry fraud as a result of a Trade NAFTA application filed four years ago and was prevented from entering the
United States. Immigration Court proceedings were instituted against him at our request to obtain an Immigration Court order that no fraud had been committed because a finding of entry fraud is a lifetime bar to admission.
After two years of litigation, we were able to convince DHS that our client had not in fact committed any fraud in his application, although he was no longer eligible for the status he had applied for four years ago. We stipulated to a resolution of the case in this fashion, and after reviewing all of the exhibits presented, the Immigration Judge agreed and issued an Immigration Court order indicating that the client was not inadmissible as a result of fraud, and which DHS is required to honor under the law.
