Our client is a Canadian citizen. He is in the music business in the
United States , and has been granted nonimmigrant status by U. S. Citizenship and Immigration Services as having extra-ordinary ability in the arts. Unfortunately, he is inadmissible to the United States for life due to a misrepresentation of his purposes for entering eight years ago which resulted in the issuance of an Expedited Removal Order.
The life of the Expedited Removal Order is five years, which has now expired. The underlying misrepresentation ground outlives the Order, and he must obtain a waiver of inadmissibility from U. S. Customs and Border Protection in order to be able to enter the
United States to avail him-self of the status granted to him by U. S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
We submitted a voluminous and comprehensive waiver application package for him. Because of a business related emergent need to be in the
United States , we requested expeditious adjudication after the waiver application was submitted. The waiver was immediately approved for a period of five years authorizing multiple entries. This is the second five year waiver we have obtained for this client.
