CLINIC has filed suit on behalf of a Miami grandmother and widow who is seeking to become a citizen of the United States. She was initially granted her permanent resident status in error, but a federal immigration judge granted her a waiver under INA § 237(a)(1)(H). Yet, USCIS has unlawfully concluded that a person is permanently barred from naturalization if there was an error in the visa process, even if the person later obtains a waiver for that error.
