Miami Deferred Inspection Lawyers

Did you recently arrive in the United States? Were you issued Form I-546 for a deferred inspection in Miami? If so, you should consult with an immigration attorney immediately. Deferred inspection is a procedure conducted by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to arriving immigrants when there is a concern about their admissibility into the United States. Concerns over the admissibility of an arriving immigrant can arise from a criminal record, evidence of immigration fraud, or simply a lack of documentation.

Deferred inspection is allowed on a case by case basis at the discretion of the CBP officer. If you are granted deferred inspection, you will be asked to return to one of the designated deferred inspection sites and possibly present certain documents. At that time, the officer will make a determination whether to legally admit you into the United States or initiate removal proceedings.

Being detained by the Customs and Border Protection officer can be stressful and scary, especially if you have to get into the country for an emergency. If you or someone you know was issued a form I-546 for a deferred inspection in Miami, Florida, then contact an experienced immigration attorney who can fight for your rights. Our founding attorney E.J. Hubbs is a zealous advocate for immigrant rights who can fight to get you favorable results. Our firm takes on cases in Miami-Dade County and throughout Miami including areas like Hialeah, Miami Gardens, Miami Beach, North and South Miami, Homestead, Kendall, and surrounding areas.

Deferred Inspection Criteria

In general, a deferred inspection is permissible when an immediate decision cannot be made as to the entrant’s admissibility at a port of entry, and the officer believes these doubts can be overcome through the presentation of additional evidence. Additional evidence can include further review of the case, posting a maintenance or departure bond, or other similar actions that can only be conducted at the deferred inspection site.

Under CBP’s Field Inspection Manual, an officer should evaluate the following criteria when determining whether or not to allow deferred inspection:

  • The likelihood that the individual will be able to establish eligibility
  • The type of documents lacking, and the ability to obtain necessary documentation
  • The immigrant ’s good faith efforts to obtain necessary documents prior to arrival at the place of entry
  • The verification or establishment of the immigrant ’s identity and nationality
  • Age, health, and family ties
  • Other humanitarian considerations
  • The likelihood that the individual would appear
  • The nature of possible inadmissibility
  • The potential danger posed to society if the person were to be paroled

If the person is clearly inadmissible or may pose a security risk of danger to society, the officer shall not defer the inspection and will place in removal proceedings or allow the person to withdraw his or her application for admission.
