Asked in Immigration Law for Illinois

Q: My B2 visa got denied Dec.2010 what can i do to get my human right to visit friends.

I ran away( i stayed 2 weeks for x mas) from 5 immigration officers when they tryed to send me back Dec.1993.How long will they hold this incident against me.I just wanna see my friends after 17 years.After the 2 weeks i came back to the airport and took my sheduled flight back to germany.they were very pissed of and led me in handcuffs to the aircraft and said i do need a visa next time i am comming back.that got denied Dec.2010.i have strong ties in my country ( work , family , car , property ) but the consul in Frankfurt germany wouldn´t even see my evidence to proof i have strong ties.I think it´s a missmanagement because of payback for the incident in chicago.When i turned myself in because my 2 weeks vacation were over ( i had to go back to work ) the chief inspector told me it never happened before that someone slipped away from 5 officers trying to send someone back on that flight i just came in (to celebrate x mas)So why payback if everyone shall be treaded the same.

A: I'm sorry that the Consulate denied your application for a visitor visa. To be successful, you must persuade the Consulate that you are likelyt o return to your home country. You should support your application for a visitor visa with proof that you have a job, that you own property, that you are married and have a family. You're welcome to reapply. But, unfortunately, your complicated immigration history may make it difficult for you to be approved. A visitor visa isn't a "human right," it's a discretionary privilege. Good luck.
