Reason for DeportationPolice

Many people in the United States are living in fear of being deported. While this is certainly understandable given today’s climate, it is important to ensure that you are educated about the possible reasons that you may be removed from the United States. These reasons include:

  • Criminal acts such as homicide, some drug crimes, robbery, theft/larceny, rape, assault, fraud, and more.
  • Violations of immigration law including unlawful entry, marriage fraud, fraudulent immigration documents, overstaying your visa, and more.
Cancellation of Removal

Individuals who are being detained and facing deportation may be able to file for a Cancellation of Removal. This can be done if the individual lived in the United States for 10 years, has not been convicted of crimes of moral turpitude, and has a good moral character. If the individual is deported and their legal permanent resident spouse, parents, or children would suffer extreme hardship, they may also file for Cancellation of Removal. It is important to note that this is very rarely issued and it is essential that you have strong legal representation every step of the way.
