Presenters: Nora Privitera, ILRC Special Projects Attorney, and Lourdes Martinez, ILRC Staff Attorney

In Part 1 of this series, we will cover inadmissibility grounds based on health; misrepresentation and false claims to U.S. citizenship and unlawful voting; and alien smuggling. We will also review the waivers corresponding to those grounds of inadmissibility, including who is covered by each waiver and how to meet the requirements. Special attention will be given to the hardship element of various waivers.  This webinar is intended for practitioners new to the field who want to gain an understanding of the inadmissibility grounds and how they can be overcome. It will also be a good review for more seasoned practitioners.

In Part 2 of this series, we will cover unlawful presence and criminal grounds of inadmissibility and the corresponding waivers. This will include an overview of the 3-year, the 10-year and the permanent bars, as well as the exceptions and waivers applicable to the same. We will discuss how to identify which crimes fall under the criminal grounds of inadmissibility and which of those can be waived, including a discussion on how to meet the requirements for the waiver. This webinar is intended for practitioners new to the field who want to gain an understanding of the inadmissibility grounds and how they can be overcome. It will also be a good review for more seasoned practitioners.

Understanding Unlawful Presence Bars Under INA §§ 212(a)(9)(B) and 212(a)(9)(C) (1.5 CA MCLE)
November 15, 2012, 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm PDT
Presenters: Nora Privitera, ILRC Special Projects Attorney, and Lourdes Martinez, ILRC Staff Attorney

This advanced webinar will analyze and compare the unlawful presence bars in INA §§ 212(a)(9)(B) and  212(a)(9)(C) in detail, demonstrating when they apply, what waivers are available and what exceptions exist pursuant to CIS policy.  We’ll also touch on the application of 212(a)(9)(C) to those with prior removal orders, and discuss the relationship between 212(a)(9)(C) and reinstatement of removal under INA § 241(a)(5). Participants will gain an in-depth understanding of these statutes and be better able to analyze clients’ cases, and avoid common pitfalls.
