I'm a Canadian Permanent Resident. I illegally entered the USA 13 years ago, and was deported back to Canada with a 10 year ban.
Now it has been 13 years. I applied for a US B1 visa; I'm a truck driver now and need to cross the border for work.
I went to my interview today. The officer asked me about what happened and I told him everything: the truth that I was young and made a mistake I regret everyday now. I'm 40 years old and have been straight and need this for work. He made some notes and said "I have to refuse your visa. But you will get email within the next few days; we want to have another interview with you within this week, and will see then what we can do."
Does anyone know how will this play out for me ?
