20 Apr 亚特兰大的韩国移民也被拒绝入境
In the case of an applicant for a permanent residence,
Since the launch of the Donald Trump administration, immigration has been tightened, and Korean immigrants have been denied entry because of the fact that the applicant’s academic record on the application for permanent residence was different from the fact that he was a few years ago.
A Korean woman who lives in Suwani went to Korea last week and was handed over to the second immigration judge to enter the country via Atlanta airport last week. Lee, a permanent resident, received the green card through the so-called ‘Chicken Factory’ several years ago and has freely visited Korea many times.
However, at the immigration examination on that day, it was revealed that he had written his education to high school graduates rather than college graduates. Lee said, “The chicken factory” is mainly oriented to lower education. At the time, he heard the lawyer and said that he had a scholastic ability and had earned permanent residence.
Lee, who has lived with his family in Atlanta, is currently trying to re-enter, but it is uncomfortable.
Families and friends in Atlanta are seeing a recent South Korean immigration lawyer who recently filed an application for permanent residence as a result of recent immigration investigations. When the immigration officer thoroughly investigated the cases of immigration conducted by the lawyer, he found Lee’s misrepresentation of false education.
“This is a rare case, but even if you are a permanent resident, if you find yourself acquiring a green card at the time of applying for a permanent green card, it may be a reason for refusing to enter the country,” said a Korean immigration lawyer. It is important to note that even if it is a trivial matter,
Meanwhile, according to the federal homeland security’s annual report at the end of last year, 6,494 Korean nationals (including permanent residents) who were forced to return to Korea during the recent five years of immigration were counted. By year, it was 1,691 in 2011, 1,191 in 2012, 1,259 in 2013, 1,242 in 2014 and 1,183 in 2015.
An average of 1,356 South Korean nationals were denied entry into the country each year, and it is estimated that this type of immigration refusal has increased due to rigorous immigration after the Trump Administration launched. (Source: Atlanta Korea Daily)
