Deportation Law

The most devastating thing that can happen to an immigrant, deportation can dramatically alter life plans and impact everything from employment to health. Without expert intervention, deportation can unceremoniously uproot the life of an individual and transplant them somewhere else.

Removal From The Country

Any foreign alien, meaning non-citizen, can be deported. This could mean someone who is undocumented, someone who arrived on a legal visa, or even a lawful permanent resident. There are many reasons for deportation as well as some defenses against deportation that should be known by any immigrant staying in the United States.

Reasons For Deportation

There are many reasons for someone to be deported, but they largely fall into two categories: immigration violations and misconduct.

An immigration violation could involve entering the country without permission or documentation. This is known as being an undocumented immigrant. Undocumented immigrants are usually deported immediately since their mere presence is considered a violation of the U.S. immigration policy. The other major category of immigration violations is people who either violate or overstay their visas. Some people are granted limited or temporary visas, which come with limits on what kind of conduct is allowed as well as a limited time to stay. If someone violates the terms of the visa, they may be subjected to deportation proceedings.

Misconduct is a broader category but usually refers to criminal allegations. If an immigrant is charged with a crime, they may find themselves having to deal with deportation as well as criminal consequences. In these cases, if the individual is convicted of a crime, they may face deportation instead of jail time or a fine.

Defenses Against Deportation

There are a few ways to defend against deportation. The most effective way to defend from deportation is to hire an immigration attorney to represent you and explore possible defenses. However, there are a few defenses to deportation proceedings that can be invoked without an attorney, though having one would make the process more effective.

One possible defense to deportation is to file for an adjustment of status. This will only work if the individual facing deportation is an undocumented immigrant. The adjustment of status will still need to use a valid path to long-term residency, such as either the family path, the asylum path, or some other avenue. If successful, the deportation proceeding will end and the undocumented individual will be given lawful permanent resident status.

If deportation proceedings are being brought because of an alleged criminal act, the decision can be fought in immigration court and, in some circumstances, appealed. This is more difficult since an immigration court does not automatically grant the accused an attorney and the case is not heard by a jury.

Fighting For Your Right to Stay

If you are facing deportation from the United States, you will need the help of an experienced immigration attorney. Using their years of experience, trial tactics, and expertise in U.S. immigration law, your immigration law attorney will be able to represent your case in the best possible way to give you the best chance to stay in the United States.

In order to achieve this best outcome, however, you will need an attorney who has the expertise and resources to take your case all the way. That’s why you should contact Attorney at Law.

Deportation Law Frequently Asked Questions

1. What does it mean to get deported?

Deportation is the process of legally removing any foreign national from the borders of the United States. Individuals may voluntarily leave the country rather than being forcefully deported, or they can be detained, brought before an immigration court, and deported by force. 

2. Why can an immigrant get deported?

There are a number of reasons why an individual could be deported. If an immigrant is undocumented, violates their visa terms, commits a criminal act, or poses a public danger to the country, they will be deported. Sometimes there will be a deportation hearing which will allow the immigrant to defend themselves in front of a judge and explain why they shouldn’t get deported. However, some violations will result in immediate deportation without any court proceedings at all. 

3. Can a US citizen get deported?

In most cases, a U.S. citizen cannot be deported. Since deportation is the removal of a foreign national from the United States, being a naturalized citizen makes an individual ineligible to be deported. In some extreme cases, the U.S. government can undergo a process to denaturalize an individual. This is incredibly rare and only occurs when the individual fraudulently applied for naturalization or otherwise committed an extreme offense against the U.S. government. If an individual is denaturalized, then they can be deported.
