Deportation, referred to as "removal" in legal terms, occurs when the federal government orders that a non-citizen be removed from the United States. This can happen for different reasons, but typically occurs after the immigrant violates immigration laws or the more serious criminal laws. An alien who is subject to Deportation or Removal procedure has legal rights prior to being removed from the country, including the right to challenge the removal itself on procedural or constitutional grounds. Deportation is a serious matter that can be scary for any immigrant. If you or a loved one is facing a potential deportation or removal, we can protect your legal rights.
