When the federal government decides to deport a person, usually after an investigation and arrest, a removal proceeding is conducted. The immigrant-defendant will receive a “Notice to Appear” from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). At the removal proceeding, an immigration judge considers arguments from both the immigrant's attorney and the USCIS (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services) attorney. Removal and deportation hearings are often triggered by a criminal conviction or some other visa status violation. If you are accused of a visa status violation, having a good immigration lawyer working for you is the best and wisest way to safeguard your legal rights and to reduce your likelihood of being deported.
