The Ins and Outs of Deportation

Under what circumstances can deportation take place?

Since most Americans are themselves here as a result of immigration, the forced removal of new immigrants from our midst is a controversial and emotionally fraught matter.

Deportation, legally known as "removal," occurs when a non-citizen is ordered to leave the United States. There are several reasons a non-citizen may be deported. Usually deportation occurs as a result of a violation of immigration laws, typically because the immigrant either entered the US without authorization, or overstayed after legal entry, or worked in the US without possessing a visa that authorized employment. Far less often, deportation occurs as a result of the non-citizen committing a serious crime. Deportation is very traumatic to the affected immigrants, who may have established homes, families, and social networks in the United States, and who in many cases no longer have any of the above in their homelands. Since most immigrants enter the United States seeking to work, deportation also can be disruptive to their employers, who face the unexpected loss of valuable employees. From every perspective, the threat of deportation is a serious matter and should not be taken lightly. If you are embroiled in a situation involving possible deportation, it is essential that you consult with an attorney experienced in dealing with immigration matters.
