Asked in Immigration Law

Q: I have two questions: 1) what is my chances to enter the US again? I still have B1/B2 valid visa.


I hope this email finds you well. My name is Hany I’m a full-time lecturer in one of Egyptian universities. I was in the US between April 2019 to September 2019. I came to the US when I felt danger and have been told that my name has been mention in the state security which are responsible to arrest the political opponents specially after my political talk with a group of students asked for my opinion for the last constitutional amendments. Anyway, I have submitted for asylum and did the interview, but my case have been denied. I didn’t make rebuttal and I had to go back to Egypt even though the danger for 2 reasons. 1) I didn’t have the financials to support myself and my family in Egypt. 2) I didn’t want to stay longer until they notice my absent then I get fully denied then the situation will be worse for me and my family.

now I have received that my hearing in court has been rescheduled to MAR 2021.

2) can I still go to the hearing?

A: If you left the United States before your hearing date in U. S. Immigration Court, then you seem to have self-deported! That means that you can be stopped at a port of entry, even detained. If you are deemed to have self-deported, then your case is likely over. In other words, by returning to the nation of your persecutors, you seem to have demonstrated that you are no longer in danger. Now, there can be options in spite of these mistakes.

As a result, I strongly recommend an teleconference with a competent and experienced immigration attorney before there are any other complications. Good luck.

The above is general information, not legal advice, and does not create an attorney client relationship.
