The Reasons for Immigration Denial 

The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) is a comprehensive piece of legislation that outlines the various grounds on which an individual can be deemed inadmissible to the United States. 

Immigration officials often cite the following reasons as the basis for a denial: 

  • Unlawful presence: One of the most common reasons for denial, this refers to those who have overstayed their visa or entered the country illegally. 
  • Prior removal: An immigrant who has previously been deported can be denied on that basis. How long it will take for the prior removal to stop being a factor? That depends on the circumstances of the original deportation.

Immigration Waiver Defense Strategies

Every case is different, and the strategies used in your case will depend on the unique dynamics involved. However, there are some common themes that often recur in these cases. 

Here are three general defenses that are often cited when seeking immigration waivers: 

  • Extreme hardship: A waiver may be approved if the denial would cause severe distress to someone close to the applicant who has U.S. citizenship or permanent residency. This hardship must go beyond the normal emotional distress associated with separation.
  • Extreme fear: If the applicant can prove they have a credible fear of persecution or torture in their home country, they could be granted a waiver. This typically applies in asylum or refugee cases.
  • Rehabilitation: This involves showing remorse and change since committing a crime, such as completion of a rehabilitation program or evidence of a crime-free period. Witness testimony can also be valuable.
