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 grounds for 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.
