    Impact of latest Feb 17, 2017 memorandum: DHS enforcement

    @shabee, whatever the case, as i stated in the previous comment, this whatever the immigration enforcement law looks not intended for those who are legally came in to US with proper documentation and staying legally with proper documentation. There is no need to rely on cbp but the memo itself speaks that.

Customer By Web Form 02/02/2017 11:22 AM Hi I have single misdemeanor DUI conviction on my record from 10 Years back. I am a legal immigrant on the part to permanent residency. I am currently on H1B and an Indian citizen. As per information in the CBP website, (https://help.cbp.gov/app/answers/detail/a_id/402/~/entering-the-u.s.-and-canada-with-dui-offenses) a single DUI conviction is not grounds to deny entry into the U.S. I have entered few times into the US with no issues but for a secondary inspection. I am in fear now. If I had to go to India on a family emergency or death, would I have any problem re-entering. Appreciate your help in clarifying. Sincerely Vinodh Narayanan

    This rule is mainly intended for immigrants who came in legally but overstayed, came in as immigrants(refugee) and became residents by getting GC (legal residents) or undocumented immigrants. It says legal residents(refugee with GC) and illegal immigrants. What you mentioned is not part of any of these. For safer side, avoid travel outside of US.

    DUI, I94 validity and I94 Departure date

    I am not a legal person.. but i think your status will not change because of this, which means you can stay in US till your i94 date and if you go out of US, you cannot re-enter US with the same visa and its upto the consular you meet(outside US if you need to stamp) or you might have prob in the POE(if you dont need to stamp). You will have prob when you apply for extension if you are on temporary work visa that, you need to work with chennai consulate to prove that you are in US and clear the departure entry

    Visa Stamping question with regards to DUI

    1st DUI is not deportable and most likely should not be a problem if we don't go outside US. Which state you had your DUI? based on the state you may have to complete probation period(0-24 months). It is not safe to travel outside of US before completing all hearing outcome. But again, it all depends on the consular you meet in india and his mood.
