Inadmissibility Webinar Series:  Unlawful Presence Bars & the USCIS Policy Change

Wednesday, July 20th 2022 from 2-3pm EST

(1-2pm CST/12-1pm MST/11am-12pm PST)


Join ASISTA for a deep-dive discussion into the unlawful presence bars at INA 212(a)(9)(B) and 212(a)(9)(C) as they apply to immigrant survivors.  When a noncitizen has triggered any of the grounds of inadmissibility at INA 212(a), they are ineligible to receive visas or to be admitted to the United States, unless a waiver or exception applies. In this webinar, we will discuss when a noncitizen has triggered the unlawful presence grounds of inadmissibility, what exceptions or waivers may be available, and what impact the newly announced USCIS policy change allowing the 3/10 year bars to be spent in the United States may have in evaluating a noncitizen’s inadmissibility for unlawful presence.
