I overstayed my tourist visa in 2007 for 2 weeks. I came back to states 2 months later and they didn't grant me entry. They kept me at the airport for two hours and than sent me back to Europe. I didn't see the judge and i was subjected to any court proceeding i was simply turned away at the airport. How will this effect my N-400 application? Specifically how should i answer the following questions:
1. Have you EVER been removed, excluded, or deported from the United States?
2. Have you EVER been ordered removed, excluded, or deported from the United States?
3. Have you EVER been placed in removal, exclusion, rescission, or deportation proceedings?
Thank you so much for your help.
You need a consultation to address your concerns. It is not wise to assist in form completion online without familiarity with the full facts of your case.
You certainly have not been deported or subject to a deportation hearing from your fact scenario.
Nonetheless seek a consultation prior to submission of your application to avoid a finding of misrepresentation.
