Youthful Indiscretion

The spouse of a U.S. resident was denied an immigrant visa for having made a material misrepresentation after acknowledging  he had obtained a fake green card  listing his age as over 21 to access bars while an underage visitor to the U.S.  many years previously.  After reviewing the details of the case, I concluded that the adjudicating consul had erroneously applied 212 (a)(6) (C) to actions  unrelated to any immigration benefit and asked the consular chief to review the decision. As a result, the denial was overturned and the immigrant visa was issued.
