Default Denied entry on AP

I, Primary applicant currently in USA filed AOS under EB3 waiting for approval
Family was in USA filed AOS along with primary applicant. Working for same employer who filed petition.

Family traveled to Mexico to meet relatives and took break for few months - 4 months to be specific (all are Mexican citizens). While returning by road, they are denied entry on AP; asked to go back to Mexico.

What should we do? Really tensed, can anyone give some inputs?

what was the reason they gave to CBP for the 4 months break?

AP may not be used for vacations or pleasure travels. It is for business & emergencies. It is clearly written in the document.

Wrong info. What you've said above applies to AP issued in case of emergencies. There is NO pre-condition on the purpose of visit.

5 years before AP documents came with 'types of travels' allowed. Now they don't specify. It could trigger you to think in that way.

I am glad that you believe that CBP instpectors are trained on this so soon!
