Did you go before an immigration judge who ordered you deported?
Hello,my name isXXXXX you for this opportunity to answer your questions.
Hi. Yes, when I was underage we went before a judge who denied our case.
I was 16 years old when the order of deportation came in. But I was told by someone that my application for a work permit is what is causing my 10 year ban. But I wanted to know if applying for a work permit, being denied, and still working gives you a ban. I didn't know if this was true. If it doesn't, then that means my ban is because of the 2003 deportation date. In which case, I would move to argue that.
I am also out of the united states at the moment. I left before the 180 days of 2009, when I was picked up by ICE, but released.
Could I ask one last question. I'm also applying for the I-601 because of this ban I have. Would you recommend that my husband's letter for extreme hardships be short and sweet? He has written 5 pages, but I'm not sure if this is too much for immigration.
Great. Thanks so much for all your help, Judith. I really needed clarification on whether or not being denied a work permit and working anyway would be grounds for a 10 year ban. I will keep you on file for any further questions I may have.
