Initial Fraud Determination at Border Reversed by Immigration Judge, Client Admitted to USPublished: Apr 13, 2012 10:30 am
Our client is a Canadian citizen. He is a well qualified management consultant to the computer industry. Previously, it had been determined by the Department of Homeland Security that he was inadmissible to the United States for fraud and misrepresentation. This ground of inadmissibility constitutes a lifetime bar to United States entry. At this point we were hired. After review, we disagreed with the Government’s determination.
Because the Government would not voluntarily change their position, we had an Immigration Court proceeding initiated so that an Immigration Judge could determine whether or not our client was inadmissible to the United States. We submitted substantial documentary evidence as exhibits in the Court proceeding showing that the Government’s position was incorrect. A thorough review of our position was undertaken by the attorneys for the Government and the Immigration Judge. Upon consideration, the Government stipulated that our client was admissible to the United States.
The Immigration Judge accepted the stipulation and issued a Court Order in our client’s favor. Our client has now been offered a position by a United States management consulting firm to provide consulting services to a major United States corporation. We prepared all of the required documents in support of the application, prepared our client for the inspection, and appeared with him at the Port-of-Entry.
The application was approved for a period of three years in less than one hour without difficulty. This is the second TN Management Consultant approval we have obtained for him since we won his Immigration Court proceeding.
