Deportation / Removal
Removal is an administrative process whereby the federal government tries to remove a non-citizen from the United States and return that person to his/her country. An alien who is subject to this procedure has legal rights that might prevent the issuance of the final removal order.

What causes removal?
Removal is the result of a circumstance under which an individual is forced to depart from the US by immigration authorities, usually for some sort of violation of their immigration status.
What to expect if you are facing deportation?
An immigration judge presides over the removal hearing where a government lawyer will present the state’s case against you. It is the responsibility of the state to identify an appropriate reason for removal and to provide all the facts specific to your case. Some reasons that might be given for the removal include:

1. You are in the country without legal permission
2. You were a perpetrator in a crime
3. You have overstayed the tenure of visa
4. You violated the terms of your visa by undertaking work without authorization
5. You smuggled illegal foreigners into the country

Your rights in Deportation proceedings
1. You have a legal right to a fair hearing so you have a right to an attorney.
2. You have the legal right to provide your evidence and even hear the evidence against you.
3. You have the right to appeal a decision against you, should that be the outcome of the case.

What does Notice To Appear (NTA) mean?

NTA is served in person or mailed at the last known address. According to the law, there should be a ten-day period between the first scheduled court hearing and service of the NTA. It is important to review the NTA to ensure that there are no errors and that you completely understand the allegations levied against you. Fully understanding the reasons for which you are being called to appear is necessary so that you can pursue any immigration relief for which you might be eligible, and so you can honor the deadlines imposed by the Immigration Court. It is best to seek professional assistance from experienced attorneys, and so we strongly recommend that you contact a qualified immigration attorney sold you receive an NTA.

NTA can be issued when the below-mentioned conditions are fulfilled:

A denial on petition or case: This includes denial of F1, H-1B extension or on the change of status, or any other visa type that ensures that status in the country
An individuals I-94 expires at the time of denial. Once an alien receives the NTA, they aren’t allowed to leave the USA until the case is concluded. Even if the proceedings go on for several months or years, the person who receives the NTA is deemed to have an illegal presence in the USA unless proven innocent in the final verdict. If proven guilty, the individual is subjected to a 10-year bar from the USA.

What Triggers an NTA
NTA lists three different statements, but only one box is checked off. The three types of nature of proceedings are:

1. You are an arriving alien: this means that the person has been stopped at the port or border of entry and not yet admitted to the USA.
2. You have been allowed to enter the USA but are removable for certain reasons: It refers to the non-citizens who were lawfully admitted to the USA for a stipulated period, mostly on a non-immigrant visa, but no longer possess the authorization to stay in the country. The most common reasons for this are either overstaying the tenure of the visa or conviction for a crime.
3. You are an alien in the US and were not admitted: This means that you entered the USA without being inspected by an immigration officer or a border agent.

It is important to make sure that the correct box is marked. If the incorrect box is marked, you may provide the necessary evidence to the Immigration Court to prove that you have been classified wrongly.

ICE Raids


ICE Raids are a serious concern, and it’s important to understand why they occur and how to respond if you are caught up in one. US Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials are empowered to raid work facilities, transportation hubs or even residential complexes if they suspect there could be a significant percentage of undocumented immigrants present. Persons caught up in such a dragnet operation may be served an NTA, arrested, or potentially removed to a detention center, depending on the circumstances.

Know Your rights in ICE Raids


1. You need not answer any questions about the status of your immigration.
2. You need not let the police officer enter your home premises unless they have a signed warrant by the judge.
3. Ask the police to identify the agency they are associated with- ICE, DHS, sheriff, local police, Border Patrol, etc.
4. You can ask to speak with your attorney and need not sign any documents without speaking to your attorney.

Immigration court processes are very complicated and you need an experienced immigration lawyer who understands all the rules and laws that might affect your case and also keeps up with the latest legal rulings.

EAD for people under Deportation proceedings
In some cases, there is the possibility that an individual who is subject to removal or deportation proceedings can legally work while those proceedings are pending. Until a removal or deportation order is finalized by a judge, a person facing those circumstances still maintains rights and protections under our system of law. And since these proceedings can take months and often years to resolve, it is often necessary to obtain a work authorization so that one can support themselves and their dependents while awaiting resolution. Certain types of applications such as NACARA, Cancellation or Removal, Adjustment of Status, TPS, or DACA can allow individuals to secure a work permit so long as their removal case is pending.
