Reasons for Deportation
Just because an immigrant has a Green Card does not mean that they are safe from deportation. As Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has become more aggressive, there are numerous circumstances that can result in deportation. It is imperative that you contact an attorney to aggressively mount a defense on your behalf.
Deportation proceedings can be enacted against an alien who is convicted of or admitted to:
- Violations of controlled substance law
- Violations of protective orders
- Security and related grounds
- Crimes of moral turpitude
- Drug abuse or addiction
- Crimes against children
- Domestic violence
- Marriage fraud
- Bond Hearing
Additionally, an immigrant found to be in violation of immigration law is deportable. This can include misusing visas, failing to register a change of address, or even falsely claiming citizenship. With so many elements that can put your status at risk, our Tampa deportation defense lawyers are here to help. We have provided thousands of clients with the strong legal counsel they deserve.
Are There Defenses to Deportation?
Just because deportation proceedings are initiated does not mean hope is lost. There are many forms of relief from deportation proceedings, such as cancelation of removal, deferred action, naturalization, post-conviction relief, suspension of deportation, voluntary departure, and more. Asylum may be an option for those that are unable to return to their homeland.
The United States can grant asylum to those who face persecution in their home country due to their nationality, religion, race, political views, or membership in a specific group. Our law firm has represented clients from Albania, Bangladesh, Colombia, Fiji, Haiti, India, Kosovo, Mexico, Pakistan, Peru, Serbia, Sri Lanka, and Venezuela, all of whom sought asylum in the U.S., and we guided them throughout the application process.
