Why You Might Face Deportation In Orlando

You or a loved one might be placed into removal proceedings for several reasons. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) can initiate deportation due to:

  • Immigration violations or fraud
  • Criminal convictions
  • Visa or conditional green card expiration
  • Employment violations

Often, ICE begins deportation proceedings when someone is arrested for a crime, whether a felony or a misdemeanor. Even if you are not convicted of the crime, ICE may still place an immigration hold on you to initiate deportation proceedings. Local jails must contact ICE if they discover that the arrested person lacks lawful status in the U.S.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) at the U.S. borders and ports of entry can also start deportation proceedings if someone is caught crossing the border unlawfully or is found inadmissible at an airport or another port of entry.

Finally, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) can initiate deportation proceedings against someone applying for a visa or another immigration benefit if information allegedly reveals that the applicant is inadmissible or deportable. Similarly, if USCIS uncovers fraudulent conduct or issues in a former application, it can lead to rescission of resident status or revocation of citizenship.

Understanding Removal Proceedings

In removal proceedings, an immigration judge decides if there is a valid reason to remove a noncitizen. Our team can analyze the charges against you to ensure their validity. The laws surrounding criminal convictions are complex, and we can challenge removability on that basis. If successful, the removal proceedings will be terminated.

If the government meets its burden of proof or the immigration judge sustains the charges, the next step typically is to ask the judge for relief from deportation. Forms of relief include:

  • Cancellation of removal
  • Adjustment of status
  • Waivers of inadmissibility
  • Asylum, withholding of removal and Convention Against Torture Relief
  • Voluntary departure instead of a removal order

If the judge orders your deportation, you may file a motion to reopen or reconsider your case. A motion to reopen is based on new facts or evidence, while a motion to reconsider is used if the court did not properly consider evidence or applied the law incorrectly. If successful, you could be allowed to stay in the U.S. It is crucial to act quickly, as there are strict deadlines for filing these motions and appeals.

Orlando is home to large and growing immigrant communities from Latin America and the Caribbean. If you or someone you know is facing the possibility of removal from the U.S., it is important to know that you have rights and options. You may be able to stay in this country or return sooner than a deportation order would allow you to.
