Report shows growing need for food deportation defense

New York residents may be under the common misconception that only undocumented immigrants with a criminal record are subject to deportation. Many people remain unaware that this is not the case, and an immigrant may face deportation with no record of previous crime. The need for deportation defense is ever-growing, but many families may not know where to find help. 

A recent report gives examples of undocumented immigrants who were recently deported, despite not being found guilty of a crime. Many claim that they have lived in the U.S. for many years, have children born here and have paid taxes on their wages. After a person has been deported, the appeal process can take many years, making a return impossible. 

Many immigrants may now fear that their life in the U.S. is uncertain. Some worry that, if they are deported to their country of origin, they will not be able to survive, due to lack of opportunity, little knowledge of the culture and being separated from their family members. It can be frightening to feel confused about an immigrant's legal status, and families who thought they were following the rules may now worry they could face deportation. 

If a New York immigrant or one's family is worried about the need to present a deportation defense, he or she might consider contacting an experienced attorney. An attorney can often understand the plight of a family facing the possibility of separation. An attorney may be able to advise what steps can be taken to make sure an immigrant is in compliance with the law and help in one's attempt to remain in the United States.
