What is Deportation?
- Deportation is the formal removal of an alien from the United States when the aliens has been found removable for violating the immigration laws. Deportation is ordered by an immigration judge without any punishment being imposed or contemplated. The Immigration and Nationality Act contains various grounds for deportation of aliens, some grounds for deportation can include entering illegally, certain criminal activity, and overstaying. The Immigration laws are always changing and have changed even in the recent years. If a person is not a United States Citizen, a criminal conviction could interfere with their immigration status and can even subject them to deportation or removal from the United States.
The Deportation Removal Process?
- The removal process typically begins with the Department of Homeland Security issuing a Notice of Appear. The documents generally consist of your name, and the county in which you were born and it orders you to appear in front of an Immigration Judge. There are forms of relief from removal or deportation such as cancellation of removal, Adjustment of Status, Waivers of inadmissibility, Asylum, withholding of removal, and Convention Against Torture relief, and Voluntary departure in lieu of removal order.
