  1. #1
    my name is edith, i came to the us 2 years ago , crossing the mexican border, i did it on the second try because the first time inmigration caught me on colorado , i spent the night on prision and i gave them a false name and nationality (i said i was mexican)because i am peruvian , if i would said the truth they will send me to peru and i wanted to try to cross again , so they sent me to mexico ,and i tried again, this time i did it. My whole family is legal here and i have a petition made by my dad who is resident for 9 years , this petition was made since 1995 . the laywer said i have to wait for one more year , but i dont know if there is some way to get a forgive because i lied when the inmigration caught me .

    Good news: unfortunatly there aren't any...
    Bad news: You have three very heavy conditions that make it practically impossible under the law to forgive you in any way:

    - misrepresantation to BCIS or borderpatrol
    - entry and presence without inspection
    - entry post deportation

    Each single one of them is an offence making you immediatly removable and ineligable to adjust your status so I don't know from what planet your attorney is or if you're disclosing all the information properly!

    The last one -illegal entry post a removal- can post a prison term of up to 20 yrs. on you if you get caught! (READ: UP TO 20 yrs. depending on your personal circumstances, history, reasons why you were apprehended this time around etc.!). As far as I can see there is absolutly no relief available for you with the "option" of leaving the U.S. at this time and waiting out a statute of limitation (anywhere from 5/7/or 20 yrs.+) or untill some law changes occur.

    Illegal entry after a removal in conjuction with a misrepresantation is a very big no-no to be around in the U.S. these days and getting caught! Why didn't you wait for your family sponsorship or other legal ways of immigrating. Not very good choices you did recently...

    Hi edith...
    I feel sorry for you. You said your parents did file petition for you back in 1995...!!!??? then why did you cross the border like this ??? I don't understand it at all...or may be you are saying that just to get little simpathy on this board....No body would ever ever mind to wait one more year if you waited 9 long yrs...

    Hey Edith,
    I'm feel sorry for you, and don't worry I'm not gonna kick you like others here, even tho, I, myself do not agree on what you did. And too bad, but I have no idea if you'll get forgiven or not.......but good luck! I think you've been kicked around a lot already, you know what you did, what you did to yourself, and for us, other immigrants....but that doesn't mean, we have to give you one more kick! Just next time, think before you act...


    Ability may get you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there.

    Edith, I am peruvian too. If all your family is legally here and there is petition on your behalf, how could you be so irresponsible in crossing the border?
    There is something I dont understand. If the US deports you (and obviously you dont have any ID to prove who you are), how can they keep a record of that people? INS fingerprints the deported ones? Just curiosity.

  8. #8
    Yes Edith, Just curious.. it was my question also. I was wondering if INS did fingerprint you even though you gave them a false name when they sent you back. If they did fingerprint you... then even if you were by chance to get paperwork, they would match your prints because they take fingerprints and run them . and that would be very bad. If they did not print you, then maybe there is hope. hang in there

    Jeanine,

    good that you feel for your fellow. It is just totally irritating then people can not distuinguish between objective and subjective postings. I know a lot of people don't like my posting because I just state the facts as good as I know them. I try to stay as neutral as possible. So including me in your "kick gang" is rather irritating to say the least. Though I don't have too much sympathy for the illegal actions of this lady, I also recognize that she may have not realized how severe her convictions in our society are regarded; apparently, in regard to her background it seems to be O.K. to lie to federal officers about your I.D. and cross borders illegally, but it takes a real "smart" one to do all this post 9-11 and that was my only motivation in warning her about the possible consequences of being present in the U.S. after what she committed.
