Persons who are unable to support themselves while in the U.S. and are likely to become a "public charge," or financially dependent on the U.S. government, are inadmissible.
Foreign national applicants are inadmissible to the U.S. if they have been convicted of either a crime involving moral turpitude, or an offense relating to a controlled substance. Read the firm's blog for further information concerning criminal grounds.
