November 14, 2019
02:00 PM (ET)
Although it is commonly referred to as the “permanent bar,” INA §212(a)(9)(C) is not permanent. Similarly, a removal order does not always necessitate permanent removal. Our panel of experts will address how to create a plan of return for clients facing removal. They also will discuss how to utilize I-212 waivers and the passage of time to bring clients back to the United States.
