BIA Holds LPR Subject to Inadmissibility for Alleged Smuggling

One of benefits of being an LPR is the ability to travel abroad and return without being subject to the grounds of inadmissibility.  There are important exceptions to this, of course.  For example, if you have been abroad for more than 180 days, that is considered a meaningful departure.  If you have been absent for more than one year or otherwise abandoned your residency, you could be denied admission or paroled in for a hearing.

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) signed onto this letter July 23, 2012 urging members of Congress to support the Help Separated Families Act, legislation introduced by Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-CA-34). The bill aims to improve the likelihood that children placed in the child welfare system as a result of immigration enforcement actions against their parents can ultimately reunify with their parents.
