My friend visa-free has been expired for about 15 months, and the ICE give "the final order of removal visa waiver pilot program". does it mean she has to back to her original country by force? or she can voluntary departure in several days?
thank you so much
The Visa Waiver Pilot Program (VWPP) permits nationals from
participating countries to apply for admission to the United States for
ninety (90) days or less as nonimmigrant visitors for business or
pleasure without first obtaining a nonimmigrant visa. This rule amends
the Immigration and Naturalization Service (Service) regulations by
adding Portugal, Singapore, and Uruguay to the list of countries
designated to participate in the VWPP. This action will facilitate
travel to the United States and benefit United States businesses.
Your friend violaterd the terms of the foregoing. One of the downsides to the VWPP is that she is not entitled to go before a judge if she overstays. BP can deport her.
