The Reasons for Deportation Hearings

The U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services may initiate removal hearings for various reasons, including unlawful presence resulting from an expired visa or other immigration law violations such as illegal entry or failure to marry after arriving on a K-1 fiancé visa. 

When an individual arrives in the United States, a permanent resident with citizenship or a green card usually sponsors them and is then responsible for their financial well-being for a period of ten years. If the new immigrant subsequently ends up on a public assistance program, that can be grounds for deportation. 

A criminal conviction is another common reason for removal hearings, especially those involving drugs, guns, domestic violence, aggravated felonies, or crimes involving moral turpitude. Immigration officials exercise some discretion during removal hearings, and our Laredo deportation defense attorney strives to ensure our clients' cases are presented in the fairest possible light.

Strategies for Laredo Deportation Defense Lawyers

In removal hearings, it's important to remember that the burden of proof rests with the U.S. government, which must demonstrate the validity of their reasons for seeking deportation. That means at least one possible defense is arguing that the hearings should not have been initiated in the first place and compelling the authorities to prove otherwise.

People with unlawful status resulting from illegal entry or staying on an expired visa may have legitimate fears about returning to their home country and can request asylum.

Another common defense in immigration cases is invoking extreme hardship and focusing on the impact of deportation on the affected individuals and their loved ones. For example, the deportation of a primary breadwinner may cause extreme hardship to their spouse and children, while deporting a caregiver may inflict hardship on an elderly person. 

To succeed with this defense, we will need to show that the affected individuals are citizens or green card holders and that the hardship they will experience goes beyond what would be considered normal. 

This strategy also allows some discretion for immigration officials, highlighting the importance of having a well-qualified attorney who knows how to navigate this complex area of law and make a persuasive presentation to the authorities.

When immigrants and their families face deportation it’s understandable if they’re scared.
