In re Hranka

Board of Immigration Appeals

16 I. & N. Dec. 491 (1978)

Facts

Hranka (plaintiff) was a native and citizen of Canada who lived in Windsor, Ontario, a Canadian town that bordered Detroit. Hranka had many close relatives who lived in Detroit. According to her mother’s testimony, Hranka was well-behaved until she began living with a man in Detroit who was a negative influence on her. Hranka began using heroin and occasionally engaged in prostitution, for which she was deported from the United States. Hranka had no other criminal record. After her deportation, Hranka was no longer permitted to enter the United States. Instead, Hranka returned to living with her parents and began working between 60 and 70 hours per week at two jobs. Hranka’s mother testified that Hranka was embarrassed and ashamed every time she was invited to go to Detroit. Hranka submitted a request to the district director of the Immigration Naturalization Service in Detroit, Michigan, asking for permission to enter the United States as a nonimmigrant visitor. Hranka’s request was denied. Hranka appealed the decision before the Board of Immigration Appeals.
