Switzerland is with german, french and italian speeking areas. The german speaking part of Switzerland is separated from the Country Germany by the River Rhein.
So we say here that some one is Swiss-German speaking what means the swiss dialect which is only a spoken language.
Newspapers are written in pure german language.
So it could be possible that someone says that he is from German-Switzerland. Perhaps the USA immigration officers didn't understand all that very clear?
