What Are the Grounds for Deportation?

There are five categories:

  1. Entering the country illegally or without property authority
  2. "Status Violations" -- this means violating the term of admission to the U.S. or working in the U.S. illegally
  3. Being convicted of a crime or being associated with specific prohibited organizations
  4. Asylum application was denied
  5. You are an alien who became a public charge within the first five years of entering the U.S.

Options When Facing Deportation

There are a few options when facing deportation. Both green card holders and non-permanent residents can seek a cancellation of removal; however, several requirements must be met.

For permanent residents, this includes having lived in the U.S. for at least seven years, having no felony convictions, and being a lawful resident for five years or longer.

On the other hand, temporary resident immigrants can seek a stay by having no deportable convictions on their record, demonstrating an extreme hardship that would result from their deportation, and having lived in the U.S. for ten years or longer.

In addition, you may stop deportation with asylum protection if you believe you will be persecuted in your home country or through an adjustment of status if you have a visa, permanent resident status, and an employer or family member who petitions the immigration judge.

Understanding the Consequences of Deportation

Deportation can have severe consequences for individuals and families, including separation from loved ones, loss of employment, and disruption of daily life. It is essential to understand the potential impact of deportation and the legal options available to you. Here are some key considerations:

  • Family Disruption: Deportation can result in the separation of family members, causing emotional distress and financial hardship.
  • Loss of Employment: If you are deported, you may lose your job and face difficulties finding employment in your home country.
  • Difficulty Reentering the U.S.: Once deported, reentering the U.S. legally can be challenging and may require a waiver or other legal processes.
  • Immigration Consequences: Deportation can have long-term immigration consequences, making it more difficult to obtain future visas or legal status.

What Are Removal Proceedings?

Removal proceedings are the legal hearings during which an immigration judge determines an individual's eligibility to remain in the United States. The process involves several stages, and each case is unique. It is crucial to have a skilled deportation lawyer who can navigate the complexities of these proceedings and build a compelling case on your behalf. The critical stages of removal proceedings include:

  • Notice to Appear (NTA): The process typically begins with issuing an NTA outlining the charges and allegations against the individual. This document also specifies the date and location of the initial hearing.
  • Master Calendar Hearing: This is an initial court appearance where the individual responds to the charges and may be allowed to apply for relief from deportation.
  • Individual Hearing: Also known as a merits hearing, this stage allows for a more in-depth examination of the case. The individual can present evidence, call witnesses, and argue legal points to establish eligibility for relief.
  • Decision: Following the individual hearing, the immigration judge will decide. This decision may involve granting relief, ordering deportation, or providing other forms of legal recourse.

Navigating removal proceedings requires a thorough understanding of immigration laws and the ability to present a compelling case. Our team at The Law Office of Mana Yegani is dedicated to providing strategic and effective legal representation throughout this intricate process.

How to Stop Removal Proceedings

There are many ways to defend against deportation. Below are just some ways to prevent or stop removal proceedings in Texas.

  • You were falsely served with a Notice to Appear. If the notice was sent to the wrong address or sent to your attorney instead of directly to you, you may have a case.
  • You are not deportable. If you are a U.S. citizen, you may not be removed. In the case that you have a criminal record, understand that not all crimes are deportable. Go over your options with a deportation defense lawyer.
  • You are in the middle of adjusting your immigration status. In some cases, immigrants may forget to extend their papers (such as a student visa); however, if you entered the U.S. lawfully, you may be able to adjust your status to being "lawfully present."
  • Are you facing persecution in your home country? Asylum and withholding of removal are options for you.
  • Cancellation of removal and adjustment of status is available for non-permanent residents, permanent residents, and battered spouses/children. Meet with a deportation attorney in Houston to understand the specific qualifications for this.

Can You Adjust Status if You Entered Illegally?

If you entered the U.S. illegally and were not inspected by an officer of Customs and Border Protection (CBP), you lose the right to adjust your status and will be removed. Your options would be to apply for a visa and green card at a U.S. consulate abroad.

What is a Deportation Bond?

If the deportation process has started, the federal government can hold a person in custody. They may be released on bond if they are not dangerous to the public and are least likely to flee or have been convicted of a crime. They will be held without bond if they are a national security risk. The deportation bond must be paid in cash through a relative, friend, or professional bondsman.
