Getting deported from the U.S of A

A few words on getting deported from the USA:

The most common reasons non-permanent residents (visa holders) are deported or removed from the United States are if they entered the U.S. without inspection or without valid entry documents, or if they entered legally on a visa, but then overstayed the period of time they were authorized to remain. 

When an individual is deported, they are essentially being forced to leave against their will. They do not have a choice as to whether they can remain in the United States. Generally, the USCIS (formerly known as the INS) issues deportation orders because the individual has somehow broken the law. 

Individuals can be deported for various crimes that range from petty theft to something more serious such as murder.

While there is the possibility of appealing orders of deportation, the odds are minimal. After the terrorist attacks of 9/11, the United States government has taken a more active stance on terrorism. In the process of doing this, the U.S. government has aggressively sought out and deported illegal immigrants, permanent residents, and other non-United States citizens who have previously engaged in criminal activity.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was created after the terrorist attacks of September 11 to more effectively deal with terrorism and security issues. DHS along with immigration agents have more actively prosecuted illegal immigrants and other non citizens that may pose a threat to U.S. citizens and others residing in the country. 

In the case that an individual unexpectedly receives an order for deportation, they should immediately consult with an immigration lawyer. If they cannot do so personally because they are being held in a facility, then their family should take on this responsibility. In cases of deportation, individuals should avoid turning to immigration consultants because even though they may be significantly cheaper, they are not qualified to give legal advice. Also keep in mind that immigration consultants cannot file an appeal. Because immigration laws are constantly changing, immigration attorneys generally have the most vast and up to date knowledge pertaining to immigration law. They can petition on your behalf while assembling a stronger case to halt the deportation. 

It may also be a good idea to consult with more than one immigration lawyer to get different perspectives on the case. However, it is important for individuals to always be on the lookout for fraudulent immigration lawyers.

If you are facing deportation, you have to contact an immigration lawyer immediately!!

Stay out of trouble people
