My family has operated a clothing store in Mexico for over 30 years. Three years ago, while crossing the Port of Entry, my mother and I were each carrying under $10,000 cash to conduct trade in the US. Since we each had under $10,000 cash, we did not declare this amount to Immigration Officer. However, the Immigration Officer determined that the entire amount we were carrying exceed the $10,000 and he confiscated over $17,000 from us and cancelled our tourist visas. We contacted Gustavo Arriaga, and he expeditiously resolved the case to our favor. The $17,000 was returned to us and our tourists visas were reissued by State Department. Due to his professionalism and human quality, I highly recommend Mr. Gustavo Arriaga.
