Who Can Immigration Authorities Deport?

Who Can Immigration Authorities Deport?

Immigration authorities have the right to remove individuals from the country for many reasons.

Committing illegal acts and making false claims are common factors that lead to the deportation of immigrants. But other causes aren’t so obvious if you’re not familiar with immigration laws.

Knowing what type of person the immigration authorities can deport is essential to protecting your status as a resident and avoiding removal.

Immigrants Who Fail to Comply With the Rules
No matter what type of visa you have, there are terms that must be followed in order to avoid immigration issues.

For example, tourist visas don’t grant individuals the right to obtain employment. The same holds true for student visas, and failing to abide by these terms can cause you to be deported.

Also, changing your address requires you to notify the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). This must be done within a 10-day period, and you can complete this process online using their website.

A change of address may seem trivial, but failing to complete the notification process could result in your removal.

Immigrants With Health Issues
Certain diseases pose a health risk to the general public. As a result, any immigrant who presents with a communicable disease won’t be allowed in the country.

Tuberculosis, HIV, and other medical conditions can result in a person’s removal. Immigrants must provide documents for any vaccinations they have received in order to stay in the country.

Immigrants Who Use Public Assistance Services
A “public charge” is any person that used public assistance services. Individuals who have green cards must provide proof that they won’t rely on any need-based programs in maintaining their residence status.

There’s a 5-year time period after your entry date in which you cannot become a public charge. Violation of this rule can lead to deportation.

Immigrants Who Create a Security Threat
National security is critical to today’s immigration laws. Threats of terrorism and espionage continue to impact the immigration process and the ways in which immigration authorities review those individuals who want to enter the country.

Engaging in these activities will cause a person to be removed, and immigration authorities consider the consequences that an immigrant may have on foreign policy concerns.

Immigrants Who Commit a Crime
Committing a crime is one of the most common reasons that individuals are deported. Although not all crimes result in a person’s removal, you must be aware of the laws related to criminal activity and deportation.

The classification of any crime will influence the decisions related to deportation. Immigration authorities determine whether certain crimes such as misdemeanors justify the removal of an immigrant.

Immigrants Who Make False Claims
Immigrants must provide accurate information to the authorities including claims related to citizenship.

The Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act allows people who misrepresent their citizenship status to be deported. This can also prevent you from completing the green card process.

This law also applies to immigrants who have American children from a marriage to a U.S. citizen. As a result, it’s important that you understand the need to provide only that information which is true on applications or other documentation.

There are many factors that can lead to person’s removal. Understanding immigration laws and having the right legal assistance protects your status and the wellbeing of you and your family.
