(iii) Exception for past membership.-Clause (i) shall not apply to an alien because of membership or affiliation if the alien establishes to the satisfaction of the consular officer when applying for a visa (or to the satisfaction of the Attorney General when applying for admission) that-

- 共产党员不可移民美国（不仅限于 EB 类别）。
- 例外情形一：(a) 非自愿入党；(b) 低于16岁入党；(c) 为了糊口而不得不入党。
- 例外情形二：(a) 申请时已退党2年以上；若该党为极权国家的执政党，则要退党5年以上；并且 (b) 申请人不会给美国带来国家安全威胁。
- 例外情形三：若申请人为“close family members”，含义是美国公民的父母、配偶、子女、兄弟姐妹，或因人道主义获得绿卡的永久居民的配偶和子女，即使其为共产党员，司法部长也有权批准（当然也有权拒绝）其绿卡申请。
答：向 USCIS 撒谎是违法的，若被移民官员认定在申请过程中有 fraud/willful misrepresentation，申请将被拒绝，并且申请人终身不得入境美国 [来源]。建议你请个经验丰富的移民律师讨论你的可行方案。
