What is a deportation removal proceeding?
Removal proceedings, whether based on inadmissibility or deportability, affect the ability of a person to remain in the United States. Deportation affects people who are already in the United States, either legally or illegally, by forcing them to leave. Grounds of inadmissibility, by contrast, prohibit a person from entering the United States in the first place.
Immigration Violations & Deportation
Immigration violations, as well as criminal convictions, can result in deportation, ineligibility for relief from removal, and being barred from naturalization. Deportation and exclusion proceedings have been combined into a single proceeding called a “removal” proceeding. There are five broad categories or grounds for deportation. They include:
- Entering the country without proper authority
- Status violators who violate the terms of their admission or work without permission
- Persons with a broad range of criminal convictions
- Persons who are members of certain prohibited organizations
- Certain people who become public charges within five years of entering the U.S.
- People whose asylum applications have been denied or referred to an Immigration Judge
