  • Passport confiscated at Port of Entry

    I have a friend who was re-entering the US today, and her passport was confiscated at the POE. She had two visas, a J-2 and a H Visa. I am not exactly sure on the H, but I do know it was an H. She was returning to be with her husband who is finishing his internship. They did let her enter, but they set up an appointment at the local field office in two weeks. What could happen now? Thank you to anyone who can help.

      She was let in on parole and needs to attend that appointment and clear her legal entrance. This can have grave consequences if it isn't fixed now. Depending on what her husband's status is, she could be charged with misrepresantation or fraud if her husband is a U.S. citizen for instance and she's trying to enter with any other kind of a visa (H or J) when in fact she should enter with a K-3...

      The passport is being kept by BCIS for expedited removal purposes. Many aliens eligable for removal will destroy their travel documents to avoid the actual extrication.

        Her husband is a J-1 Visa holder here working on an internship. I know that right now they are both worried about what could happen next. Her husband said that he needed to get a DS-???? form from the company that sponsered him. Does anyone know about this? I thank you for your help.

          i believe what they did was a Deferred Inspection to a district office near where you live. i bet you need the ds-2019 form which is the sevis form your husband has for j-1 status.

            Thank you for all of your replys. I believe bohica is correct on the DS-2019. They have contacted the company for this.

              No problem, all deferred inspection is when they cannot determine your admissibility at the POE at that moment because of documents or whatever and delay the inspection to a office near where you live.so its no big deal.

              What i dont understand is what Acelaw was saying,and how he got that idea?
