Nonimmigrant Waiver Approved for CanadianPublished: Sep 1, 2008 By: Robert D. Kolken Source: My Source
Our client is a Canadian citizen. He has been determined to be inadmissible from the United States for attempting to use a fraudulent passport to enter the United States in 1990, and because of his previous unlawful presence in the United States. He is an engineer, married to a Canadian citizen, and has three Canadian citizen children. He has resided in Canada for a number of years.
In 2001, he attempted to enter the United States to visit his elderly sick mother. Immigration Court proceedings were instituted against him, which we successfully defended, and obtained an order allowing him to withdraw his application for admission.
Last year we applied for a nonimmigrant waiver of his inadmissibility so that he could enter the United States as a business visitor for his employer, to visit his U. S. citizen mother, and to vacation and shop with his family. U. S. Customs and Border Protection approved the application for multiple entries valid for five years.
