What Does Deportation Removal Proceeding Mean?

Deportation removal proceedings are either based on deportability or inadmissibility. Both factors affect the ability of an individual to remain in the United States. Deportation applies to individuals already in the US, whether legally or illegally.

Deportation is a form of law that's applied to legally force people to leave the country. On the other hand, inadmissibility prevents an individual from entering the United States.

How Can Individuals Protect Themselves and Know Their Rights in Deportation Defense?

Individuals can protect themselves and know their rights in deportation defense by following these guidelines:

  • Stay calm: It's important to remain composed during encounters with immigration officials or law enforcement.
  • Stay silent: Refrain from mentioning your place of birth or how you entered the United States. Exercise your right to remain silent.
  • Record details and names: Take note of important information, such as names, badge numbers, and any relevant details about the encounter.
  • Do not run away: Fleeing from an encounter with immigration officials might worsen the situation. It's best to stay put and comply with instructions unless advised otherwise by legal counsel.
  • Ask to speak to your lawyer: If approached by immigration authorities, ask for an opportunity to consult with your attorney before answering any questions or providing any documentation.
  • Know your rights: Familiarize yourself with your basic rights, such as the right to remain silent, the right to an attorney, and the right to refuse consent to a search.
  • Seek legal representation: Consulting with a lawyer experienced in deportation defense can greatly assist in protecting your rights and navigating the legal process.
