Dear Editor:
I agree with David D. Murray, Esq.'s letter that we should turn to the experts of immigration law for assistance. That is why my husband and I hired an immigration attorney soon after we were married in 2002. We paid our so called modest professional fee and the attorney filed the necessary paperwork for us, but then she stopped returning our calls and was not available to advise us on what might happen at our interview in Juarez. Never did she mention that my husband would be banished permanently. Technically she is still considered our attorney since I have not yet formally fired her as I should. I have attempted to hire a more competent attorney, but they have declined taking our case because it involves changing Federal Law. Using the exact words of the Consular Officer, my husband was denied his visa per Section 212(a)(9)(B)(II) of the INA, which prohibits the issuance to any alien who has been unlawfully present in the US for one year or more, and who again seeks admission within 10 years of the date of such alien's departure or removal from the US. And, my husband is permanently barred from entering the US per Section 212(a)(9)(C)(II) of the INA, which prohibits the issuance to any alien who has been ordered removed under 235(b)(1), Section 240, or any other provision of law, and who enters or attempts to reenter the US without being admitted is in admissible. We also completed and submitted an I-601 waiver application. The entire package, fee and all, was returned to me with a note reiterating the above reasons for his denial. But there is hope, we will be eligible to submit another I-601 waiver application in the year 2010. Or, is it 2014?
