Although the main port of entry for many visitors to this country is at a land border, many attorneys do not practice near one, have never visited one, and are otherwise unfamiliar with its procedures. Nevertheless, nearly all immigration attorneys have represented clients who have encountered troubles at a land border. Wouldn't it be nice to have a better idea what the border is like before advising a potential border crosser? Join our panel of experts as they provide an overview of crossing a land border.
