29 Dec Drug Use Denial
LIFETIME BAN WAS LIFTED AND VISA WAS ISSUED, DESPITE ADMITTING TO DRUG USE!!! Rey (left) had been separated from his family for more than 14 years. When his petition finally became current, he went for his medical exam, and admitted to the doctors at St Luke’s that he tried some drugs out of curiosity when he was still in High School in 1974. This admission resulted in a lifetime ban from entering the US. The world crumbled for the Nepomuceno family. But in 2011, leading US immigration attorney Michael J. Gurfinkel brought the family good news! He convinced the Embassy to change its policy and to reopen and reconsider Rey’s case.
