I am a citizen. My wife had a merits hearing on her asylum application before IJ and ordered removed three years ago. Then we got married and my I-130 has been approved. She was trying to terminate removal proceeding, but IJ said that she made misrepresentations on her asylum application, and asked her to file 212 waiver. We are not sure if IJ meant I-212, or I-601, or something else? Please help us.
The IJ may have said "212(i)" which is the section of law regarding waivers of misrepresentation-based inadmissibility.
