Criminal Activity Can Lead to Deportation
If you commit a criminal offense in the United States, you may become subject to deportation/removal proceedings. Though not all criminal offenses result in deportation/removal proceedings being instituted against you, your status often depends on the judgment of immigration authorities. A green card holder may be deported when convicted of aggravated felonies as well as some that carry lesser consequences, such as:
- Drug offenses
- Firearms trafficking
- Domestic violence
You can be deported for committing a misdemeanor, too, which is why it is critical to consult with a deportation defense attorney to determine your strategy for staying in the country. But unfortunately, things aside from criminal offenses can also spark deportation.
Other Reasons for Deportation in the United States
Violating the terms of your visa can result in deportation/removal proceedings being instituted against you. For example, if you visit on a nonimmigrant tourist visa but take a job, you could get deported because you failed to follow the conditions of your visa.
Immigrants who do not tell U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services when they move can also face deportation. You must let USCIS know about a new address within 10 days of your change of address..
Additional deportation causes may include:
- Receiving public assistance
- Violating immigration laws
- Entering into a fraudulent marriage
