On What Grounds Is The Government Allowed to Deport You?

Deportation (also known as removal) proceedings can come about in several different ways. It isn't only if you are undocumented that the government may try to deport you. It can also happen if you are in the U.S. legally but find yourself "out of status," such as by overstaying a visa.

Indeed, even if you are a green card holder you could be subject to deportation if you are convicted of certain crimes. The law contains a long list of such, which includes even such low-level offenses as minor drug charges or DUI.

How Can You Get Relief From Removal?

The good news is that there several different procedures that can be used to avoid deportation. Perhaps the best known of these is the DACA program for young immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as children. The Trump administration announced in September 2017 that this program will be winding down.

There are, however, other procedures potentially available to challenge deportation. These include cancellation of removal, adjustment of status and applying for asylum.
