INTERPRETERS for Removal (AKA: Deportation) Proceedings

The U.S. government, at the expense of the United States, will provide an interpreter to anyone who is not fluent or otherwise unable to effectively communicate in the English language.  Thus, you will not be required to bring an interpreter to any of your immigration court hearings.  However, you may bring your own interpreter at your own expense.  For more information about interpreters see the Immigration Court Practice Manual, Chapter 4.11 (June 1, 2023) (pg. 66), available online:, 8 CFR § 1003.22.
