I guess at that time I just wasn’t brave enough. Then I had my son and DACA came, by this time I definitely did not want to risk it and get 10 yr ban. I never applied for advanced parole because I never had a reason n I was a bit scared too.
Well you know, the son coming could help with the hardship claim. If this was a more friendly administration, it would be worth the risk.
