As an immigrant to the United States, one of the most nerve wracking scenarios are the idea that the Immigration department will conduct a raid. The primary goal behind immigration raids are to find those who have deportation orders against them and act upon those orders. A lot of the time, people aren’t even aware of the fact that a deportation order has been issued against them. Of course, when an ordered has been issued against you, you worry about whether or not your family is safe and what will happen if ICE knocks at your door or comes to your job.
Deportation orders may be issued if you failed to attend your deportation hearing with the court. If you are unsure whether or not a deportation order has been issued against you, you can call 1-800-898-7180 and enter your 9-digit A number. If it turns out that you have in fact been issued a deportation order, you should contact an experienced immigration attorney immediately. Your attorney should accompany you to your hearing date. If a deportation order has been issued, you should make plans to have your children cared for in the event that you become detained. If you become detained, it is important to contact your attorney who can help you through this difficult time.
