Understanding the Risks of Deportation

Being flagged for removal from the United States is no doubt an unsettling situation. Whether they realize it or not, both documented and undocumented immigrants can be at risk for deportation. Understanding the reasons why you could face deportation is critical to protecting yourself. Here’s what you need to know:

Reasons for Deportation

Immigration violations can place you in removal. Committing the following immigration violations could subject you to deportation:

  • Conviction of a crime of moral turpitude (i.e., prostitution, fraud, larceny, intent to cause harm to a person)
  • Conviction of more than two offenses with a combined sentence of more than five years
  • Marriage fraud (you could face criminal penalties for marrying someone for the sole purpose of obtaining a green card)
  • Falsely representing yourself as a U.S. Citizen
  • Unlawful entry into the U.S.
  • Conviction of possessing 30 grams or less of marijuana
  • Receiving benefits by pretending to be a U.S. citizen

If you are facing deportation, the first thing you should do is contact a Miami immigration lawyer as soon as possible. Depending on your situation, we may use the following as a deportation defense:

What to Do When Detained by ICE
