What is Immigration Law?

Immigration law refers to the national statutes, regulations, and legal precedents governing immigration into and deportation from a country. In the United States, immigration laws are federal, meaning they apply throughout the nation. These laws determine who may enter, how long they may stay, and when they must leave.

Why Might Someone Be Denied Immigration?

There are several reasons why someone might be denied immigration to the United States:

  • Security Reasons: If there’s anything in your background, such as an association with someone involved in minor crimes to serious terrorist activities or membership in a totalitarian party, you can be flagged. Then you may have to prove your innocence.
  • Public Health Concerns: If you are coming from an area that’s currently high in infected numbers, particularly with infectious diseases and viruses, you can receive a denial.
  • Criminal History: Convictions for certain crimes can lead to immigration being refused. A criminal history, even of minor crimes, can lead to you being denied immigration.
  • Public Charge: If the government believes you may be likely to become primarily dependent on government assistance, you may be denied.
  • Misrepresentation or Fraud: Providing false information or fraudulent documents during the immigration process can result in a denial.

How Can a Denial be Overturned/Changed?

To overturn or change a denial of immigration, several avenues can be pursued:

  • USCIS Administrative Appeals Office (AAO) or the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA): You may appeal certain USCIS decisions to these bodies. They review the decision and can potentially overturn it.
  • Form I-290B, Notice of Appeal or Motion: Filing a motion to reopen or reconsider this form is another way to seek further review.
  • Motions to Reconsider: A motion to reconsider either identifies an error in law or fact in the immigration judge’s prior decision or identifies a change in the law that may affect the decision.
  • Federal Lawsuit: In some cases, especially for arbitrary and erroneous F-1 Change of Status denials, filing a Federal Lawsuit can be an effective way to overturn the decision.
