Why would I be deported?
Coming to the United States is a dream for so many all over the world. However, some choose to come or feel forced to come illegally, or they fall out of legal status after coming here. Falling out of status can be due to some error, illegal actions or crimes, or unfulfilled status requirements, for which the consequence is to be deported.
Immigration laws are taken very seriously in the U.S., and certain policies are in place to enforce them for the sake of its citizens’ safety and security. If these policies are violated, non-citizens must be removed from the country.
These are a few of the common reasons that someone might have to face deportation:
- Entering the U.S. illegally
- Failure to maintain the stipulations of your visa
- Failure to update the United States Citizens & Immigration Services (USCIS) with address or occupation changes
- Conducting fraudulent behavior, such as falsifying bank statements (student visas) or marriages
- Receiving public assistance or unauthorized payments
- Committing certain crimes or felonies
