Deportation is the formal removal of a foreign individual from the U.S. for violating an immigration or criminal law. While deportations can happen anywhere and anytime, there is a process that must be followed to lawfully remove someone from the country. Undocumented individuals must receive notice and attend hearings to determine whether they will be removed from the country or whether they have a right to remain. The process gives undocumented people the right to counsel and the right to appeal decisions before they are subject to removal. If you are facing deportation, an experienced immigration lawyer can guide you through the process and protect your rights.
