Deportation in New England
Immigration violations and criminal convictions can result in deportation and sometimes in being barred from naturalization. There are many grounds that can cause a person to be deported under the United States Immigration Law. These broad grounds include:
- Entering the United States without proper authority
- Violation of non-immigrant status the stay in the US or work without permission
- Persons with certain number and type of criminal convictions
- Membership in certain prohibited organizations
- Persons becoming public charges within five years of entry to the US
If you fall within the above deportable grounds, you may receive an I-862, or notice to appear, which puts you on notice of deportation proceedings and requires you to appear before an immigration judge. It may be possible for you to remain in the United States legally by proving exceptional circumstances or unusual hardships to your family as a result of your deportation.
