The Immigration Project got its first Form I-212 approval, which will allow a husband and father, who has waited in Mexico for 10 years, to finally join his family in the U.S.  He will be joining his U.S. citizen wife and two U.S. citizen daughters, who he has been living separated from since 2006.  

The backstory:
Mr. G Salinas (name changed) met his wife in Mexico after he returned from working and living in the U.S. without permission. He decided to marry her and stay in Mexico and they had a child. Because she was a U.S. citizen and wanted to live in the U.S., she traveled to the U.S. . While there, she learned she was pregnant with her second child and decided to stay, visit him in Mexico, and work to bring him to the U.S. They didn’t understand he was barred  from entering the US due to multiple entries without permission, and so he had to remain outside for 10 years,…AND  then they didn’t understand that he would need special permission from the U.S. government to come back after the waiting 10 years. Until she met with our agency, after he was once again denied at the consulate at Ciudad Juarez.
