lopay Yes Iwas denied avisa because of a prior removal and illegal reentry in 1989. I contacted my Congressman but his assistant proved to be clueless. I tried to impress upon him that this case is one of misinterpretatin and misapplication of the law. He sent me a waiver application.
I wouldn't rely on a congressional assistant - I have the feeling a US senator's immigration liaison can be more effective (but I have no proof). Have you consulted a lawyer to fight the finding? Which consulate? This does occasionally happen but you have be very proactive and work to get it rectified.
I do have a lawyer but he has not taken any specific action that I know in the last 4 weeks. His assistant keeps telling me that the lawyer is reviewing my case. I even mailed the lawyer articles by American Immigration Legal Foundation (practice advisory)on reinstatement and how the Department of State consider this section 212 a 9 c to apply only to post 1997 reentrants. No retroactivity
What about dealing directly with the consulate? You could contact the Director of Immigrant Visas and plead your case? (Which consulate?) I would send a fed ex letter (of course better if it comes from your lawyer) stating their error, the law, etc.
The Dakar Senegal .I thought that is what the lawyer was going to do; try to resolve this at the level of the Consulate.
Personally, I would go directly to these two -- fed ex letters to the District Director with the local office copied. Explain the situation clearly and briefly. Quote the law. Include your case number, etc. Then call to follow up -- just my thoughts.
