Alien Smuggling 212(a)(6)(E)

Section 212(a)(6)(E) of the INA provides for the inadmissibility for visa issuance of any alien who at any time knowingly has encouraged, induced, assisted, abetted or aided any other alien to enter or to try to enter the United States in violation of law is ineligible for a visa and inadmissible to the United States.

A key element of the new INA 212(a)(6)(E) provision is that the smuggler must act knowingly to encourage, induced, or assist an illegal alien to enter the United States.

With regard to a visa application, an alien who knowingly makes false oral or written statements on behalf of a visa applicant, including a family member, is inadmissible under this section, provided the false statement was material (i.e., the visa applicant was or would have been found eligible for the visa based on the aliens false statement but, on the true facts the visa applicant was not eligible for the visa);

What is then done?

Challenge the finding: If you believe that there are legitimate grounds for challenging the findings of the officer, an appeal or request for reconsideration is submitted on point of law and facts to the appropriate supervisor of the officer or to the appropriate administrative or judicial body.

Therefore, it is necessary to understand the consular officers rationale for visa revocation, and when appropriate, challenge the decision without unreasonable delay through expert and professional experienced U.S. Immigration Specialist Lawyer who has been representing such cases regularly in U.S. Embassy in Dhaka or the appropriate administrative or judicial body in U.S. Failure to do so silence is viewed as consent with the decision of Consular Officer.
