Immigrating to the United States is a lifelong dream for many people around the world. Each year, however, this dream is endangered for thousands of them through a process of deportation. The National Immigration Law divides deportation matters into two categories: inadmissibility and expulsion procedures. Deportation based on inadmissibility prohibits a person from entering the United States while expulsion forces individuals already in the US, legally or illegally, to leave the country.
There are five major categories of reasons for expulsion:
- Entry to the country without proper authorization, as with a valid visa.
- Violations of status “that occur when an immigrant violates the conditions of his admission or works illegally in the United States.”
- Persons with criminal records or membership of certain prohibited organizations.
- An individual asylum application has been denied
- A foreigner who becomes a public charge within five years of entering the United States. The determination to constitute a public charge applies to immigrants who depend on the public benefits that provide cash, such as Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, or Supplemental Security Income for subsistence.
The deportation procedure
In a typical deportation proceeding, the foreigner in question is arrested and detained by the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (USICE). Shortly thereafter, the individual will receive a “Notice to Appear,” which explains why the alien is not allowed to remain in the United States. A USICE official then determines the eligibility of the ties and may postpone the deportation hearings. Once the decision has been made and after the deportation hearing, an appeal of the judge’s decision to the Immigration Appeals Board can be filed within 30 days of the decision. It is important to note that the Immigration Appeals Chamber makes its ruling on appeals based solely on the printed record of the previous proceeding, The decision of the immigration judge and the legal writings of the lawyer. The immigrant in question is not authorized to testify during the appeals process.
