Mayor Rob Ford was likely deemed “inadmissible” when he arrived in Chicago last week, says a Toronto-based immigration lawyer.

Ford flew out from Toronto to Chicago on Thursday to seek rehab for his self-admitted alcohol problem.

Canadian officials said on Tuesday that Ford “withdrew his request to enter the USA and departed” after he landed in the U.S. city.
