What does 212(a)(6)(c)(1) and 212(a)(7)(A)(I)(I) means?
INA 212(a)(6)(c)(1) says that a person who was found to have committed fraud or willful material misrepresentation is inadmisible to the US.
INA 212(a)(7)(A)(I)(I) say that any immigrant, at the time of application for admission, who is not in possession of a valid unexpired immigrant visa, reentry permit, border crossing idetification card, or other valid entry document required by the UNA, and a valid unexpired passport, or other suitable travel document, or document of identity and nationality if such document is required under the regulation issued by the Attorney General, is inadmissible to the US.
When someone has not told the truth, or has not been honest about her immigration past, she is inadmissible under the first one.
And usually, if the border patrol believes that a person is trying to enter the US to stay permanently, but she does not use or have an immigrant visa to do so, she is found inadmissible to the US based on the second one.
