1993 Bednarz Letter on F-1 Reinstatement

This 1993 legacy INS letter established, among other things, the proposition that "the reinstatement process may be considered to consist of three steps: 1) an admission on the part of the alien that she/he has been in violation of status, 2) a legal determination by the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) that the alien is out of status, and 3) a judgement by INS that resumption of lawful status on the part of the alien is warranted."
