My husband was deported in 2008 with a 10yr inadmissability bar. Is there hope or anything I can do in the meantime?

Asked over 1 year ago - San Jose, CA

He was deported after having his Visa denied in 2008. He tried to return illegally to the US which resulted in being detained for 2 months and then deported with a 10yr punishment.

Additional information

How can i find out if they would reconsider his case? Can I do anything before the completion of the 10yrs or do I strictly have to wait?

    Answered . It appears that he was deported twice. This may bar him permanently under the current law and he would have to reside outside the US for 10 years first before he becomes eligible for a waiver.
    You should consult with an immigration attorney for a review of his case.
