Not possible to answer your question without more information. There are many grounds of inadmissibility and entering the US without permission is merely one. There are criminal bars to admission and the public charge ground to admission. My suggestion would be for your father to consult with an...Read more »
This intermediary helps him to apply for schools and acts as a helper, however, the intermediary doesn't deliver and also faked a I-20 and lied to my friend saying that it is a real one.
