Any person who is not a U.S. citizen can face deportation charges. While the government may have legitimate reasons to remove an immigrant, sometimes immigrants are deported unfairly due to minor technicalities that can be overcome. Having the guidance of a skilled NY deportation attorney can help.
Legal grounds for deportation may include the following:
- Being convicted of violating U.S. laws
- Having a serious criminal record or pending criminal charges outside the United States
- Entering the United States illegally by evading the border inspection process or entering with a fraudulent visa or fraudulent green card
- Overstaying a visa
- Fraudulent marriage
- Carrying a contagious illness such as AIDS or tuberculosis that poses a health risk to the public
Membership or sympathetic ties with prohibited organizations or terrorist groups
