Attorney Ashwin Sharma is defending a client wrongly deemed permanently inadmissible to the U.S. under the Terrorism Related Inadmissibility Grounds ("TRIG") section in the INA. TRIG is the same overbroad regulation that many innocent individuals have been unjustly subject to. For example, an asylee from Burundi was named a terrorist and jailed for 20 months by the U.S. because he was found to have financially supported the Rebel group that robbed him of $4.00 and a bagged lunch. Similarly, Mr. Nelson Mandela was subject to this regulation for having fought against apartheid. He required a special waiver from the then Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to enter the U.S.

Opponents of TRIG's overbroad reach have pointed out that even America's first President George Washington would have been subject to Terrorism Related Grounds of Inadmissibility, as the law stands today, for having fought in the Revolutionary War against the British.
