Immigration and Customs Enforcement is aggressively searching for, apprehending, and deporting (or “removing”) foreign nationals present in the United States without proper legal papers. Once placed into deportation proceedings, a person may be eligible for a limited range of forms of relief or “defenses” which would allow them to remain in the United States. One’s ability to remain in the United States will depend on one or more factors unique to that individual’s case.
If you or a loved one has received a Notice to Appear in Immigration Court, or if your or a loved one has been arrested and subjected to an ICE detainer (or “ICE hold”) do not delay in contacting a qualified deportation lawyer. Deportation lawyers who practice in deportation defense will know how to analyze your individual case to determine what forms of relief are available.
