Attorney Sharma defends client who was wrongly accused of being a ‘terrorist’ and barred from entering the United States
Attorney Sharma and our client were interviewed by Channel 4 News yesterday. Our client’s Afghan husband has been wrongly deemed permanently inadmissible to the U.S. under the Terrorism Related Inadmissibility Grounds section in the INA, the same overbroad regulation that many innocent individuals have been unjustly subject to.
For example: an asylee from Burundi was considered a terrorist under this regulation, and jailed for 20 months by the U.S. because he was found to have financially supported the Rebel group that robbed him of $4.00 and a bagged lunch. For fighting against Apartheid, Mr. Nelson Mandela was subjected to this regulation and had to be granted a waiver to enter the U.S. by the then Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
Attorney Sharma will be filing an exemption for our client’s husband with the offices of the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano and/or U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder. Our exemption will petition the highest levels of our government to review this case again, and approve an admission to the U.S. if no adverse grounds are discovered.
