Telling lies in order to get a visa to enter the US

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
I will be taking a second wife ishaallah. I applied for a fiancee' visa so we could marry in the US. That was well as an immigrant visa. Is it haraam to use another person's id for her to enter the country?

Praise be to Allaah.

I think that it is not permissible to deceive or tell lies in such cases when the first request has been refused. Submit a second application and state your reasons. Using someone else’s passport or ID, or someone else’s visa – we think that this involves some measure of lying or deception. So he should apply again until he gets what he has requested.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
