Why would someone be denied entry to the United States?
Did you know that if you are a traveler from any country who is attempting to enter the United States, there is a chance you could be denied entry? While the majority of people, including Canadian citizens, pass through the United States border relatively easily, people are denied entry to the United States every single day.
Reasons why someone would be denied entry to the United States
There are many, many reasons that someone would be denied entry to the United States. The most common reason, especially for Canadian citizens, is that they have a criminal record. While not all criminal records will result in a denial of entry to the United States, there is always a chance.
People who enter the United States must be in good health and have enough money to pay for their trip. If you are not in good health (or you have a communicable disease, mental health problem or substance abuse issue) and you cannot prove that you have enough money to support yourself while in the United States, you could be denied entry.
Previous immigration offenses, such as having been removed from the United States, having overstayed a visa previously or having been found to have misrepresented yourself to immigration officials can also result in a denial of entry.
You may also even be denied entry if you have close ties to organized crime or if you have an immediate family member who is a drug trafficker.
Have you been denied entry to the United States, or fear that you may be denied entry to the United States because some of or one of the above reasons apply to you, give our immigration law firm a call.
