It is super dangerous to travel to Mexico with an EAD / AP combo card, you could get re-entry denied, my lawyer claims that, is it true?

Traveling to Mexico and trying to get back to the U. S. with an EAD / AP could result in re-entry denial?

 

I'm paying my attorney to file I 485 and I 765 under c9p category by filing I 131, she warned me it doesn't worth it to leave the U.S. until my AOS gets resolved due to the current trump immigration climate, has anyone travel and got back with AP recently?

 

I came to the U.S. Legally wtih a TN Visa, overstayed and married an U.S. Citizen, I have a pending VAWA case that was received 40 days ago

Normally I would say it is fine, legal, etc, but........does your lawyer cite specific cases of denials with valid AP?

Only US citizens are guaranteed entry to the US. So could you get denied? Sure, but unlikely.

 

That being said, as long as you have legal AP, you shouldn't have any issues. 

 

Your attorney sounds like they are spewing fear with the whole "Trump immigration climate".... AP has been the same for a long, long time.  So I would ignore that rambling honestly.

 

That being said, it's up to you if you choose to travel or not.

The concerns come from somewhere, people have been denied re-entry with AP. But I get your point, thanks.

Can you provide some examples of such people denied with a valid AP document? I have yet to see one.
