Possible Reasons for Removal or Deportation

ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) can deport you under a number of circumstances if you are not a U.S. citizen—even if you are a green card holder. Under new rules, one can even be placed into removal proceedings at USCIS interviews and at ports of entry. Any time ICE threatens you, it is imperative to contact an attorney right away to build a defense on your behalf.

The many situations and circumstances that can lead to deportation may include:

  • Violating the laws of immigration
  • Criminal convictions – at any time in any country
  • Criminal arrest – even if there is no conviction
  • Traffic violations
  • Domestic violence incidents
  • Green Card expiration
  • Visa overstay
  • Terrorism threats
  • Illegally voting or registering to vote
  • Documentation discrepancies
  • Working under a false social security number
  • Helping someone enter the U.S. illegally
  • Merely admitting you ever committed a drug offense
  • Denial of stay of deportation

Detained by ICE—Fast-Track to Removal

If you or a loved one are in ICE detention, you need to contact an immigration attorney immediately. ICE and the immigration courts prioritize your case and place you on a much faster schedule than non-detained cases. A 2015 study found detained immigrants to be 10.5 times more likely to win if represented by an attorney. Released and never-detained immigrants were 5.5 and 3.5 times more likely to win, respectively, if represented. Our expert lawyers will fully inform you in all aspects of your case and zealously litigate for the best available relief, such as:

  • Immigration Bonds
  • Asylum, Withholding of Removal, and Convention Against Torture
  • Cancellation of Removal
  • Voluntary Departure
  • Adjustment and Re-Adjustment of Status
  • Waivers of Inadmissibility
  • Terminating the Case
  • Judicial Review of I-751s
  • Judicial Review of Credible Fear Interviews
  • Challenging Illegal Apprehension
  • ICE Bonds and Parole

What Is Difference Between Removal And Deportation?

They are initially the same. Deportation is referred to as removal in legal terms. There are a couple of reasons a person may be removed. The action is when the federal government orders a non-citizen to be removed from the United States. The most common reason is because the individual has violated the immigration law or criminal laws.
