Determination of inadmissibility reversedPublished: Jun 9, 2008 By: Matthew L. Kolken Source: My Source
Our client was previously refused entry to the United States at the Toronto Pearson International Airport in 2002. At that time, the Immigration Officer denied our client’s application for admission, and stated that the reason for the denial was that he had violated a deportation order. The Immigration Officer further advised our client that he was inadmissible to the United States for a period of ten years from 2002.
We were able to determine that our client departed the United States, and entered Canada in March 1998, and that the ten year period of inadmissibility has subsequently expired. Customs and Border Protection has agreed with our interpretation of the facts and law, and has determined that our client, a citizen of Canada, is no longer barred from coming to the United States.
