To live and obtain residence in the United States, you must be found to be “admissible.” Even if you have a valid visa, you may be denied if immigration officers believe you are inadmissible for any of the reasons set out in federal immigration law. Some examples of reasons for inadmissibility include:
- Having mental or physical disorder that may cause harmful behavior;
- Criminal conviction of a crime of moral turpitude or other specified offenses;
- Multiple criminal convictions on your record;
- Deemed as a “drug abuser;”
- Committed fraud in relation to U.S. immigration laws;
- Membership of a totalitarian political party or the Nazi party;
- Previous deportation or removal from the U.S.; or
- Previous unlawful presence in the United States.
