Under what circumstances might I be deported from the United States?

Essentially, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) may find it necessary to deport you from the country if you are found to violate any immigration laws. More specific examples of what may prompt a deportation and removal order are as follows:

  • You may have been found guilty of participating in a criminal act:
    • You have committed a crime of moral turpitude any time after being admitted to the United States.
    • You have committed a crime an aggravated felony any time after being admitted to the United States.
  • You may have been deemed to be a threat to the country’s public safety:
    • You have engaged in, or become likely to engage in, terrorist activities.
    • You have engaged in certain offenses involving firearms or other weapons.
  • You may have been found to violate the terms and conditions of your visa type:
    • You have committed marriage fraud to be admitted to the United States.
    • You have falsely represented yourself as a United States citizen to reap certain benefits.

What are some tips for avoiding deportation from the United States?

You must not give the USCIS any reason to even consider your deportation and removal from the United States. Thus, in addition to being law-abiding, it is in your best interest to follow the below tips:

  • You may apply to become an asylum seeker in the United States, if applicable.
  • You may apply to become a naturalized citizen of the United States, if applicable.
  • You may consider volunteering to exit the United States, if this is your preference.

However, say that you are already at the point where you receive notice of your possible deportation and removal. Well, this is when you may have to petition to waive this deportation and removal order (i.e., Form I-212). Evidently, this may require a certain extent of legal aid.
