Deportation and Removal Archives

Immigration Services

No government tracking on noncitizen veterans

The men and women who serve in the United States military dedicate their lives to ensuring that the rest of their compatriots are safe and secure. Throughout Kentucky countless individuals have left their families to travel great distances in an effort to protect the nation and its people. What readers may not know is that not all of those who have served have been citizens of this country.

When can committing a crime lead to deportation?

Sometimes mistakes are made, and a non-citizen in Kentucky or elsewhere in the nation commits a crime. However, particularly if the crime they are convicted of is a felony (or even certain misdemeanors), the consequences could go far beyond the fines and jail time that citizens would expect -- the person may face deportation and removal. Whether this happens depends on the person's status, what crime was committed and the specific facts of the person's case.

Some people at risk of deportation choose voluntary departure

Undocumented immigrants in Kentucky and elsewhere are at constant risk of being caught and deported. However, the deportation and removal process can require a lengthy detention period and the immigrant will not get to choose where in their home country they will be deported. Moreover, it may be years before they can reapply to enter the U.S. As recent numbers show, many immigrants in such situations are choosing to voluntarily leave the country.

U.S. Supreme Court issues ruling affecting deportation process

Is it lawful for the government to detain immigrants who have committed a crime without a bond hearing, even if the immigrant is in the country lawfully? And if so, when should the government be able to detain these individuals? These issues went before the U.S. Supreme Court, and the Court's ruling could have a significant effect on some immigrants who are facing deportation and removal after having committed a crime.

U.S. Supreme Court issues ruling on deportation and removal

Should an immigrant who has been convicted of a crime and served their sentence be forced to face the possibility of deportation at any point following his or her release from incarceration? This question on deportation and removal was recently argued in the U.S. Supreme Court.

Court rules in favor of asylum seekers facing expedited removal

A federal appeals court issued a ruling recently that is good news for migrants residing in Kentucky and elsewhere in the United States who are seeking asylum. In the ruling, the court determined that asylum seekers who are facing "expedited removal" have the right to pursue a judicial review of this ruling, per the U.S. Constitution.

What happens if a person faces deportation and removal?

Sometimes an immigrant enters the United States unlawfully, violates their visa or commits a crime. When this happens, immigrants in Kentucky and elsewhere in the nation may face deportation and removal. It is important for our readers to have a basic overview of the deportation and removal processes in the U.S.

Government shutdown may affect removal hearings

The most recent federal government shutdown that began just before Christmas 2018 has had a major effect on many individuals in the nation, including some in Kentucky. The fact that many federal employees aren't being paid has been given a lot of attention in the news. However, another sector of people -- migrants awaiting a hearing on their immigration status -- are also being impacted by the government shutdown.

Asylum seekers could face deportation under new proclamation

Immigration issues are making news headlines as of late, especially those involving the U.S.-Mexico border. Kentucky residents may be concerned about immigrant rights, particularly those of immigrants seeking asylum. Those individuals may want to learn more about a presidential proclamation President Trump recently signed regarding those entering the U.S. to seek asylum.

Federal judge rules certain immigrants safe from deportation

Some people immigrate to the United States because their homeland is not safe to live in. The federal government recognizes this, and thus implemented a special immigration program known as the Temporary Protected Status program. The current presidential administration ordered that this program should be ended, but Kentucky residents may be interested to hear that a federal judge has ruled that doing so is unlawful.
