Immigrants to the United States can be removed from the country through a legal process called deportation. A deportation and removal attorney defends the right of individuals and families to remain in the United States and ensures that the government is acting legally in its case to deport a visitor or worker.
Deportation is not a random act of whim made by government officials. Those officials must make a clear case for deportation which falls within the accepted guidelines for removal. Generally, there are five reasons that may provoke a deportation removal case:
- Illegal entry into the United States of America
- Violation of visa terms, including overstaying
- Illegal association, fraud or criminal activity
- Dependant on government for primary subsistence, a public charge
- Rejected asylum application
Although these reasons may seem clear and well-defined, in reality, many of these reasons for deportation recognize special circumstances which may applicable to your deportation case. Recognizing those special circumstances is one of the many tasks of a deportation and removal defense attorney. For example, deportation cases based on becoming a public charge must show that the defendant relies on the government for income maintenance. Merely receiving assistance, such as food stamps or public health benefits, is not considered grounds for deportation.
Regardless of the cause, a deportation proceeding is an unnerving, even frightening experience, even for immigrants who are familiar with American culture and the English language.
