Under certain conditions, any non-U.S. citizen, even with lawful status, can become deportable. Deportability is a determination of whether specific immigration laws were violated – specifically § 237 of the Immigration and Nationality Act.

There are different ways a person may become deportable. For example, a non-U.S. citizen is deportable for being in the United States without status. Conviction(s) for certain crimes or types of conduct are considered “deportable offenses.” Deportable offenses trigger removal proceedings in Immigration Court. It’s important to note that most non-citizens have the constitutional right to challenge allegations of deportability in Immigration Court. However, conviction for certain categories of deportable offenses may disqualify a person from stopping their removal.

The deportable offenses in Atlanta include:
Crimes Involving Moral Turpitude (CIMT)
Aggravated Felony (AF)
Crimes of Domestic Violence, Stalking, Violation of Protection Order, and Child Abuse (often misdemeanors)
Controlled Substance Offenses
Certain Firearm Offenses
Other Deportable Offenses listed within INA § 237(a)(2) subsections A through F.
