Entering the U.S. Despite Prior Deportation


     On December 9, 2009, I attended an Immigration Court hearing on behalf of a client in his early 20s.  Although I repeatedly warn my clients that Immigration Court hearings are sacred functions and THOU SHALL NOT BE LATE, my client was 20 minutes late.  The judge was about to hand me a removal order when the foreign national walked in.  Big sigh.
     Tardiness resulting in a removal order is probably not an uncommon occurrence throughout the country's Immigration Courts.  Unfortunately, not all foreign nationals are as lucky as my client.  Those depart the U.S. and then seek to return -- even if they left against their will by being deported -- are eligible to apply for a waiver so that they can re-enter legally.  This is filed on Form I-212, as are other types of waivers.
