I used to be a student in the US on F-1 visa. I graduated but was not able to secure an employment that would grant me H-1B. Instead I was hired as a private contractor and have no permission to work in the US. Basically I overstayed for slightly over 8 months and out of status now.
My father got a tourist visa to the US on two occasions. Once back in 2005 for 6 months and another one in 2009 for 5 years. He visited me twice and returned to his home country.
He want to visit me for a couple of weeks again in a few months. His tourist visa is valid and he does not have to go to a US embassy.
My questions is what are the chances that he would be denied entry to the US at a point of entry (airport) based on his son's (i.e. mine) immigration status. He is not aware of intricate details of the US immigration law. He knows that I graduated (which is true) and got hired (also true). He doesn't know that I do not have a valid permit to stay in the US.
What should he say if he is asked whom are you visiting and what are the chances they ask or try to verify the immigration status of the person he is visiting ?
Any help/suggestions/recommendations are greatly appreciated.
PS He is not trying to stay in the US. He does have extensive family back home (wife, grand kids, house etc.) and he has air tickets to fly back and the itinerary of our vacation that I have arranged for him and for myself.
