If a relative comes to visit you in the U.S. and enters the country without an inspection or visa, they are considered “inadmissible” under U.S. law. If your relative is here illegally, they can face serious consequences. They risk deportation, and may not be allowed back into the U.S. for up to ten years. This is devastating to families. The good new is, if you are a naturalized U.S. citizen (USC), you can help your family member remain in the country legally.
