Deportation of immigrants and other individuals may result as a consequence for entering the United States illegally. You can also be deported if you are not a citizen and have committed a serious crime.
Immigration issues and deportation occurs when the federal government formally removes an alien from the United States for violating immigration laws. Once deported, an alien may lose the right to ever return to the United States, even as a visitor. Livelihoods and families may be impacted, and in some cases, a deported alien may end up living in a "homeland" that he or she has little familiarity with.
Deportation is a legal proceeding, and anyone who is subject to the procedure has a legal right to challenge it prior to being removed from the country. A legal challenge involves appearances before a government body and the laws involved are complex and constantly changing. As a result, legal representation is essential for your best chance of avoiding deportation.
