This Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) decision held, among other things, that:
  • An alien going to the United States for the primary purposes of study at a school which has not been approved by the Attorney General is subject to the provisions of INA sec. 101(a)(15)(F), and is not admissible as a nonimmigrant visitor for pleasure as defined by INA sec. 101(a)(15)(B)
  • The B-2 visitor for pleasure nonimmigrant category is not a "catch-all" classification available to all who wish to come to the United States temporarily for whatever purpose, but instead encompasses a specific, defined class of aliens.
