The Seventh Circuit has rejected a challenge to a reinstatement.  The petitioner argued that he did not "illegally" reenter the United States after deportation because he was waved into the United States, a situation recognized by the Board of Immigration Appeals as a procedurally regular entry.  The court disagreed, finding that the petitioner's substantive illegal (albeit procedurally regular) entry still triggered the reinstatement provision.
