Refused Entry to the US Resolved

Hi Beth!

I finally made it across to the US. I was sent to secondary inspection at the Peace Bridge and was kept there for quite a while being asked a million and one questions over and over about my purpose in the states and my ties to Canada, but I think when they were going through my purse and pulled out pictures of my parents and I started crying it really made them realize that I was telling the truth.

I’ve been allowed to stay until January 7th, and if I overstay or break any rules I can be banned for up to 10 years from the US. January 4th is more than sufficient for me so that won’t be an issue.

I just wanted to thank you, Johanna and Michael at Niren and Associates for all of your help once again. You will most likely hear from me in the near future regarding my immigration to the US.

Have a wonderful day!
