Thank you for your question
It sounds to me also that it is an abuse of their power. And it is not up to them who gets to enter the United States and who to ban. More importantly, they should know better than to have someone who does not know the English language sign something when he clearly does not know what he is signing. You would need a good immigration attorney; They would be well versed in banning someone from entry into the United States.
Call the Florida State Bar Association and the Bar Association for the County in which you live. Ask for their "Lawyer Referral Service"; Consultations are usually free. Tell them what your problem is, speak to a few attorneys, ask questions and then select the one with whom you feel the most comfortable. If you cannot afford a lawyer, ask for the names of lawyers who charge on a sliding scale.
Your question will not close and when you press "ACCEPT" you may ask follow up questions, if you want
That is the only way I get paid

Don't forget to leave positive feedback!
You have an excellent chance of having the ban overturned when the lawyer shows the Judge that your boyfriend did not speak the language, that none of the border patrol officials spoke Italian and that nobody even tried to explain to your boyfriend what he was signing.
