Understanding Unlawful Presence and Other Immigration Violations

How do your clients’ prior entries to and exits from the United States affect their ability to immigrate? What do past encounters with Customs and Border Protection, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or the immigration court system mean for your clients? This workshop will focus on the grounds of inadmissibility triggered by leaving the United States after accrual of unlawful presence and/or removal orders, as well as re-entering the country unlawfully after accrual of unlawful presence and/or removal orders. INA 212(a)(9) covers the most common ways your client may be found inadmissible. 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.
