Prior Removal Orders, Unlawful Presence and the Permanent Bar

Clients often have previous entrances and exits into and out of the United States by the time they walk into your office. Some have been stopped by Customs and Border Protection, but it is not always clear what happened during that interaction. What do all these trips and encounters mean? This workshop, appropriate for practitioners of all levels, will explore the various ways that clients’ immigration histories can lead to inadmissibility for a prior removal, unlawful presence, the permanent bar, or reinstatement of a prior removal order. The session will also cover when a waiver may be available to overcome these grounds.
