Thread: deported 20 years ago-no records found, help?

  1. #1
    I was deported more than 20 years ago, I'm trying to legalize my status, but after requesting my records from imm. dept. UNDER THE PRIVACY ACT **they do not have them. Should I continue pretending that I was never deported, where else should I search for records, COULD MY RECORD SHOW UP LATER, please any advice!!

    Why can't you simply admit/state that you were deported?

    WHY you need to get the evidence FROM THEM TO show THEM that you were deported?

    Yeah, once they take your fingerprints they will know you were deported. A FOIA requests only searches by the name you gave them NOT by the name you used when you were deported.

    Are you still in America b/c that's what it sounds like,if so you can't adjust especially if you returned uninspected after that deportation. In most other cases there are waivers available for people after more than 20 years if they're not permanently inadmissiable.
