The United States Department of Homeland Security and its agents detain hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants each year. Once detained, an individual is often kept in small and overcrowded holding facilities that may be lacking necessary supplies and medical care, especially for those with special needs.
Deportability, or removal as it’s technically called today, is the act of sending an immigrant out of the U.S. It is, quite literally, the ‘removal’ of an immigrant by the immigration authorities.
The way in which an immigrant is removed will depend entirely on the reason for removal. Both the United States Code and the Immigration and Nationality Act explicitly define the different grounds for deportability. While the grounds are far too many to list here, we’ll provide you with a list of the main classes of deportable aliens:
Within each of these classes are a number of details, clarifying definitions and subcategories.
A common misconception is that deportation is reserved solely for undocumented or illegal immigrants. Undocumented immigrants are those who crossed the U.S. border illegally or overstayed their allotted time under a visa. But while an undocumented status can certainly be grounds for deportation, it’s by no means the only grounds.
Under U.S. immigration laws, the following types of persons can be removed by the authorities:
Do not rely on this information alone to determine if you’re at risk of removal. Only a qualified attorney can review the circumstances surrounding your current immigrant status and determine if it qualifies for deportability under the Immigration and Nationality Act.
