When the USCIS authorizes a legal entry into the United States on a temporary
or permanent visa, the organization does so under the stipulation that
you will obey the country's laws and not violate the terms of your
visa. Should you wish to remain in the U.S. for the duration of your visa,
or if you plan on eventually applying for a green card, it is important
that you make yourself aware of the offenses commonly considered to be
removal or deportation.
Being convicted of a criminal offense is one of the primary reasons an
individual will be at risk of deportation. Typically, charges for drug
crimes, weapons offenses, domestic violence, prostitution, crimes of moral
turpitude, and certain felonies could result in deportation.
If you are charged with such offenses, you could receive notification from
the United States Department of Justice Executive Office for Immigration
Review (EOIR) that removal or deportation proceedings have begun.
Other reasons for deportation or removal proceedings to be initiated include
staying past the expiration date on your temporary visa, submitting a
fraudulent immigration application, gaining illegal entry into the U.S.,
having connections with known terrorists or being involved in terrorist
activities, and espionage.
Facing deportation or removal can be frightening. Without an in-depth knowledge
of immigration laws you could easily find yourself being torn away from
family and loved ones. If you suspect you are at risk for removal or deportation
and you want to protect your right to remain in the U.S., I strongly advise
you waste no time in securing legal representation.
