Deportation and Removal Archives

Immigration Services

Immigrant reservists could face discharge, possible removal

Many service members from Kentucky and nationwide bravely serve in the United States military to protect the country they now call home. However, this service does not always last until retirement. Sometimes, a person is discharged from the military before retirement. When a person is discharged from the military, there will usually be a reason given (good or bad). But, some members of the U.S. military are being discharged without explanation or an opportunity to defend themselves.

Could new USCIS policy lead to removal of international students?

Many students from abroad come to Kentucky to attend college or other institutes, such as graduate school, law school or medical school. These students general do so through a lawful visa. After graduating from college, graduate school or law school, a foreign student may want to seek work or continue their education. If they are able to do so with the proper visa, they can lawfully continue living here. But, per a new policy by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), this may become harder and could even lead to deportation and removal.

What is the process for deportation and removal?

Kentucky residents may have seen many stories in the news as of late regarding undocumented immigrants being detained and deported. These reports are certainly disturbing to those in our country who are undocumented or have loved ones that are. Therefore, it is important to understand how the deportation process works.

Kentucky colleges are leaders in admitting students from abroad

Many may say the current immigration system in the United States is dysfunctional with overburdened courts, an overly complicated application process and unreasonably long wait times. However, at least two colleges in Kentucky have taken steps to help many immigrant students lawfully stay in the country.

Some Hondurans must leave the U.S. or face deportation

The United States is often seen as a refuge for people trying to escape a war-torn nation, or a nation that has been struck by a natural disaster. Many people in Kentucky and elsewhere support initiatives to help these people legally reside in the U.S. However, one program that allowed Hondurans to reside and work in the U.S. temporarily is soon coming to an end, affecting the lives of thousands.

Supreme Court issues ruling regarding crimes and deportation

Many people immigrate to the United States with the best of intentions. However, sometimes an immigrant in Kentucky or elsewhere will have committed a crime and hence will face deportation. However, not every crime committed automatically means mandatory deportation. Unfortunately, the laws surrounding the commission of crimes and deportation can be vague.

Even a minor conviction could mean life or death for an immigrant

"During the Obama administration they weren't deporting anyone who wasn't a violent criminal," says Louisville immigration attorney Dennis Clare. "Now, any crime...could be a matter of life or death. They could be deported."

Greyhound passengers being threatened with deportation

Greyhound buses have been transporting people across the United States for decades. Many people in Kentucky find the Greyhound bus system to be a cost-efficient way to travel. However, one practice the company is permitting to take place on its buses has drawn the attention of the American Civil Liberties Union.

Man facing immediate deportation granted one-year stay

It can be a terrifying experience for an immigrant in Kentucky or anywhere else in the nation to be detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, often with little notice. However, sometimes, these stories have happy endings. For example, one man living in the United States has been granted a one-year stay of removal after previously been notified by ICE that he will be deported immediately.

Approximately 3.6 million DREAMers face possible deportation

People in Kentucky may have been immigrants themselves at one point, or chances are that they know someone who is. Immigration is in the forefront of our nation's politics these days, in particular issues regarding how to handle "DREAMers" -- undocumented persons who came to the United States as children. This is important as, according to one report by the Migration Policy Institute, there are approximately 3.6 million DREAMers in our nation. This amounts to approximately one-third of all undocumented individuals in the United States.
