Obama Bans 89 Year Old Veteran From Returning To The U.S. To See His Son.
According to a story in Fox News, “John Oliver’s last chance to live out his days with his son in New Jersey might have been to sneak across the U.S. border, but the ailing, 89-year-old World War II Royal Air Force veteran didn’t want to break the law.
Instead, Oliver — who lives in the Bailiwick of Jersey, the largest of England’s Channel Islands — and his son, an American citizen, went about it the honest way, filing all the tedious paperwork and paying the required fees to secure him a green card.
All seemed to be going as it should until immigration officials determined Oliver must be barred from re-entering the U.S. for the next 10 years because he overstayed a 90-day visa issued in 2011, when his wife was dying and doctors recommended the couple remain under the care of their 61-year-old son in New Jersey.
“Our biggest mistake was being honest,” his son, Robert Oliver, of Vernon, N.J., told FoxNews.com Wednesday. “Lawyers told us we should have just kept him here illegally.”
