i was charged with material misrepresentation while entering the us 9 years ago and was denied entrance to the us at that time. i signed a document on the airport describing my case saying that i would have a 5 year bar from re-entry. 9 years had passed since than and i went to the embassy for a tourist visa B1-B2 to finally be able to return and see family. I got denied my visa request saying that i am not eligable for us visa any longer. is that true even though i signed a document saying that i would be banned for five years? the consul said that under these circumstances i cannot enter but i should log on the homeland sec. website where there must be similar cases to mine and i can get advise there. can i ever reapply for a visa as a tourist? would i be eligable for a waiver if i married an alien who was lawfully granted residency? would that have to be approved by the Attorney General and if so what are the criteria or the chances?
