AAO Grants Motion to Reopen for TPS Applicant Where Notary Falsely Claimed to Be an Attorney

In a nonprecedent decision, the AAO granted the motion to reopen and remanded, finding that the applicant met all of the Lozada requirements, and satisfied his burden of showing that his delay in filing for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) was due to the ineffective assistance of an individual impersonating an attorney.

Said on an I-9 you were a USC? That could prevent you from ever adjusting status.

The Eighth Circuit denied the petition for review, holding that substantial evidence supported the Board of Immigration Appeals’ finding that the petitioner falsely claimed U.S. citizenship on a Form I-9 when he applied for a job in 2009. Accordingly, the court found that the petitioner was inadmissible under INA §212(a)(6)(C)(ii)(I), and was thus ineligible for adjustment of status.
