What are Common Reasons for Deportation?
You can be deported from the U.S. for a variety of reasons. One of the
most straightforward and apparent reasons for removal is that you entered
or remained in the U.S. without legal status. However, even individuals
with a visa or green card can be deported.
If you are detained by immigration officials or receive a Notice to Appear
in immigration court, you must know that you will not be immediately deported/removed
from the U.S. The immigration system generally allows everyone in deportation
or removal proceedings to apply for an immigration benefit to avoid being
deported or removed..
Common reasons can include:
You committed a crime. The more serious that crime is considered, the more likely it will lead
to removal. The crimes that can lead to removal are listed under Section
237(a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), such as drug crimes,
firearms crimes, the smuggling of other aliens into the U.S., human trafficking,
domestic violence, crimes of “moral turpitude,” (relating
to dishonesty and violating good moral values), violent crimes such as
rape, murder, and manslaughter, and most aggravated felonies. Even misdemeanors
can be considered crimes that classify you for deportation by immigrant
You violated immigration law. For example, you may be accused of engaging in marriage fraud to gain
entry and a green card. Smuggling other foreign nationals into the country
also violates laws on immigration.
You have deemed a security risk due to terrorist activity, espionage, endangering the public, or engaging
in other illegal antigovernmental actions.
You violated the terms of your visa. For example, if you visit the U.S. as a tourist, you are prohibited from
working here. You have violated its terms if you overstay your tourist,
student, or other visa without getting it renewed. Even failing to advise
immigration officials of your change of address as a green card holder
is a violation.
You have been found to be receiving public assistance. Green card holders must have proven that they will not become dependent
on free government services as a “public charge.” If it has
been found that you have gone onto welfare, gotten food stamps, free medical
care, or other governmental services, it can be a deportable offense.

When considered for removal, the first step will be that you receive a
Notice to Appear. This notice will instruct you when and where to appear
before a judge in immigration court. These notices can be issued by the
United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), U.S. Immigration
and Customs Enforcement (ICE), or the U.S. Customs and Border Protection
(CBP). It is essential to know that you will not be immediately removed
but will have a chance to present your case to a judge.
