Removal Is The Worst Fear Of Many Immigrants
Many foreign nationals living in the United States fear removal, commonly known as deportation. This process is one on the most stressful and frightful experiences many will ever experience. However, immigrants deserve legal protection and to assert the available defenses allowed by the government. With a multitude of available defenses, it is important to consult an immigration attorney to discuss the best possible option.
Special Circumstances That Can Affect A Removal Order
Some people came to the United States as children and now face removal. Others came under the ruse of gainful employment or a promise of marriage to only be enslaved in human trafficking or be subjected to cruelty by an abusive spouse.
Removal can be dangerous for some foreign nationals. There are instances when those who return to the country in which they were born find that political or criminal enemies want to harm them and their families.
Other times the foreign national is the primary care giver to an American citizen or a legal permanent resident. If he or she is removed, the citizen or legal permanent resident will suffer undue hardship.
