“They Just Waived Me In!” Issues and Strategies in Inadequate Inspection Cases

This 90 minute audio seminar was originally presented August 19, 2010.

  • The New Statutory Definition of Admission
  • Inadequate Inspection Scenarios
  • Matter of Arreguillin
  • Strategies in Corroborating Evidence of Credible Testimony
  • Obtaining CBP Records of Admission
