Grounds for Deportation

Unfortunately, individuals may find themselves facing deportation or removal proceedings for a wide variety of reasons. Just some of the most common grounds for deportation from the United States are as follows:

  • Violation of Visa Terms: Overstaying a visa or failing to adhere to the conditions of your visa status (e.g., working without authorization).
  • Criminal Convictions: Convictions for certain crimes, including aggravated felonies, drug offenses, and crimes involving moral turpitude, can lead to deportation. Whether you are a permanent resident (green card holder) or undocumented, our team is passionate about finding solutions for individuals and families facing these challenges.
  • Fraudulent Activity: Engaging in fraud related to immigration processes, such as marriage fraud or falsifying documents to gain entry or residency in the U.S.
  • Security Threats: Being considered a threat to national security or being suspected of terrorism-related activities.
  • Public Charge: Being deemed likely to become a public charge or primarily dependent on the government for subsistence, based on circumstances.
  • Illegal Entry: Entering the United States without proper authorization or inspection by immigration officials.
  • Failure to Register: Failing to comply with registration requirements for foreign nationals, including not updating a change of address.
  • Unlawful Voting: Participating in U.S. elections as a non-citizen, which is a violation of immigration laws.

Best Defenses Against Deportation/Removal Proceedings

Every case is different, so the specific defense your lawyer uses will depend on the circumstances of your case. That said, some of the most valuable defenses against deportation are as follows:

  • Asylum: Claiming asylum on the grounds of persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution in your home country due to race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion.
  • Adjustment of Status: Applying for lawful permanent resident status (green card) if you are eligible, for example, through family ties or employment, which can provide a defense against deportation.
  • Cancellation of Removal: This relief is available for particular permanent residents who have lived in the U.S. for a specified period, and non-permanent residents who can demonstrate continuous physical presence, good moral character, and that deportation would cause extreme hardship to themselves or their U.S. citizen or permanent resident family members.
  • Waivers of Inadmissibility and Deportability: Applying for waivers that forgive specific grounds of deportability or inadmissibility, such as the waiver for the three- and ten-year bars for unlawful presence.
  • Deferred Action: In some cases, you may be eligible for deferred action, temporarily preventing deportation. This includes programs like DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) for individuals who came to the U.S. as children and meet certain guidelines.
