    Explanation of What is Considered A Permanent US Entry Waiver

    in Entertainment

    We will do a show that will discuss permanent us entry waivers. Now a actual permanent us entry waiver is called a Nonimmigrant Border Crossing Card("BCC"). The BCC can only be used to enter the United States from contiguous territory and only for entry under visitor status B-1/ B-2. 


    The U.S. State Department has not been issuing the BCCs to Canadians since April 1, 1998. 


    An INA §212(d)(3) waiver(us entry waiver) issued along with an INS BCC was valid for the duration of the card. Such waivers are valid indefinitely since the old BCCs were valid until revoked.


    There are no new regulations permitting the issuance of new BCCs to Canadians. Canadians with these indefinite waivers could continue to use them.


    However, there is 2nd way to get cleared for life. Not every conviction will require a us entry waiver. Some CBP officers have no idea whether your offence will make you inadmissible or not. It is easier for them to send you home with a waiver packet than to try and figure it out. By obtaining a "September Letter," will allow the offence that you have been convicted of to be waived permanently. So despite the fact that it is not actually called a pemanent us entry waiver...Your specific conviction is permanently waived based on CBP determining that your offence does not make you inadmissible. We will discuss this process and how to obtain one.

    US Entry Waiver Persons Admitting to Elements of Criminal Offence @ USA Border

    in Entertainment

    Ok it has come to my attention that a lot of people don't understand the connection between admitting to criminal specific details, being denied entry to the USA and then needing a us entry waiver. This show will clarify/explain how CBP uses the fact that a person admitting to certain elements of an offence(criminal or not) can make them inadmissibile. Often a person will start becoming a chatter box and talk themselves into needing a US Entry Waiver. Afterwards, we hope that you can under the connection between admitting to things at the border will cause you future grief. We understand that people are generally not familiar with USA immigration law & CBP procedures...However, we tire of explaining the same thing repeatedly to people about what they say can and will be used against them at the border. If we had a dime for everyone that said "I was just trying to be honest," we could retire today. Persons not born and raised in Canada and immigrate here, rarely make this mistake when dealing with government officials.Hence it is much easier to clear them. We would like you to have the same fortitude which could prevent you from needing a us entry waiver. Please listen to this show very carefully and we definitely welcome calls from anyone. We don't even mind trolls calling because they would actually help us to provide information to you. Listening to this could prevent you from needing a us entry waiver and future headaches.

    Somethin' 4 The Fellas presents...Ex Offenders: The Re-entry Back Into Society.

    in Lifestyle

    On this broadcast, I will shed some light onto a situation that is all too real for hundreds of thousands. At least 87% of citizens of the U.S., are either themselves, related to, or have had some dealings, to a certain extent with ex offenders. Now, let's keep in mind, the term "ex", meaning no longer. This broadcast is in no way, a means to bash, degrade, or belittle. Although many of us have never been arrested or convicted of a crime, many of us have done things to a certain degree of detriment, but have never been caught. The goal of this broadcast is to provide information on programs designed to assist with re-entry, signs to look for in an ex offender that would cause steps backwards, and most importantly JOBS/EMPLOYMENT opportunities for ex offenders. If yourself, a family member, loved one, friend, or simply someone you know is an ex offender, then this will be a must be involved with broadcast. To call in or listen to LIVE, the number is (347) 857-2487. The chat room, as always, will be open. Hope you'll tune in. #NUFFSAID
