Arrested immigrants may face deportation and removal proceedings

immigrantion and Customs Enforcement agents recently arrested 112 immigrants in Southern California. These arrests came as part of a four-day sweep, arranged to round up ex-convicts to be put through deportation and removal proceedings. Many of these individuals have already been released from jail, but some are being held to go before immigrantion judges.

Illegal reentry charges after deportation and removal proceedings

If an immigrant in California or elsewhere is found to have re-entered the United States illegally after being deported, he or she may face a number of serious consequences. There are those who are denied the ability to remain in the country at their deportation and removal proceedings, though, who do choose to re-enter for various reasons. Regardless, these individuals do have the right to representation as they defend their actions.

Representation for detainees is available

Thousands of immigrants continue to cross the border into the United States or even choose to stay well beyond when their visas expire. These individuals are often detained in detention centers in California or elsewhere until their cases can be heard by immigrantion judges. Few may realize, though, that representation for detainees from an experienced immigrantion attorney is available to assist them with their cases.

Deportation and removal proceedings: Delaying removal

For immigrants in California and elsewhere, the thought of deportation often weighs heavily on their minds. When a removal is ordered, it is not uncommon to question what options one might have to fight the order. While many believe it is not possible to fight a negative deportation and removal proceedings outcome, the truth is it may actually be possible to delay a removal order.

California representation for detainees: Immigrants can seek help

There are numerous immigrants who are being held in detention centers in California and other locations across the county. Some of these individuals are held for years at a time as they try to sort out their immigrantion cases. Unfortunately, many of them feel helpless in their causes, as their cases sometimes drag on with little progress. Those in such situations do need to know that representation for detainees is available.

What are 212(h) waivers and who can get them?

Having a criminal record can have an extremely negative affect on one's ability to obtain a visa. Immigrants who have been convicted or accused of crimes of moral turpitude, drug involvement and various other offenses are likely to have visa applications denied and may even be deported. For those seeking to enter California or avoid deportation and who find themselves such situations, 212\(h\) waivers may be the answer to getting visa applications approved.

Felony conviction can affect deportation and removal proceedings

Criminal convictions can greatly affect an immigrant's ability to remain in the country. While not all convictions will result in deportation, those immigrants in California with felony convictions are more likely to face deportation and removal proceedings. While a person's back story and the details of the crime do matter, having a criminal record certainly can have an affect on the outcome of these proceedings.

Drug crimes and deportation and removal proceedings

The Governor of California recently signed into law a bill that would help immigrants avoid deportation for low-level drug offenses. Unfortunately, another bill along that same line was vetoed and could result in numerous immigrants facing deportation and removal proceedings. Thankfully, these individuals are entitled to legal representation and have the ability to fight for the right to remain in the country.

Hundreds to face deportation and removal proceedings

A massive operation recently conducted by the U.S. immigrantion and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency resulted in hundreds of arrests in California. It has been reported that over 200 immigrants were detained by ICE agents at the end of August in the southern portion of the state. Some of these individuals are to be criminally prosecuted, while others will be sent to deportation and removal proceedings.

Deportation and removal proceedings possible for California woman

A California resident is facing deportation and removal proceedings after police responded to complaints about her barking dogs. The woman claims she returned home with her children after grocery shopping and found the police waiting for her. She stated they scolded her about her English skills and when they asked her to show identification, they manhandled her. The police claim the woman became upset and kicked one of the officers, a claim she denies. Any immigrant facing criminal charges may be subjected to deportation and removal proceedings, so it may be in their best interests to request legal assistance as soon as possible.
