Ordinarily, when a person is placed in Immigration Court
proceedings by DHS, and
such person resides outside the U.S.
the person must remain outside the US
unless and until an Immigration
Judge orders DHS to admit him.
exception to this rule is when a person is a lawful permanent resident of the U.S.
Our client is a Canadian citizen seeking admission to the
as a visitor. DHS claims he is
inadmissible and instituted Immigration
Court proceedings against him to obtain an order
which will bar him from the U.S. We claim he is admissible. He is involved in a substantial business
transaction in the U.S.
which is of great economic significance to a U.S. city. After we obtained letters from appropriate
civic officials, DHS allowed him to enter the U.S. in parole status for the
purpose of closing the transaction notwithstanding the fact that the
Immigration Court proceeding has not yet been completed.
