If you were told to ask for a pardon - that is really a waiver - that means you violated your status on one of your visits.

Did you ever overstay?

I am not clear, what do you meant you helped someone cross the border? Did you drive a car?

Did they stop you?

Did she prove she was a US citizen to the agents who stopped you?

Why would they say you were a coyote if she had evidence of her US citizenship? What happened to her when you were stopped?
