I have a friend in India who came to the U.S. on a visitor's visa to visit a friend he met online. In an attempt to stay in the U.S. with her, they got married with the intent on him staying in the U.S. At the time of the marriage he was only in the States for 2 months.
Since his deportation he has attempted 3 times to get a visa to return, and 3 times he has been denied.
Is it possible he was flagged for fraud and put on a ban list?
If so, are they obligated to tell him when he keeps reapplying for a visa?
Any help is appreciated
