For most immigrants, one of their biggest fears is being deported from the United States. Many immigrants believe that they are safe from this fear once they become permanent residents. Unfortunately, however, deportation is sometimes still possible for permanent residents in certain situations, and it's important to be aware of what these situations are.
Your Admission to the United States Was Not Legitimate
If it is found, after the fact, that your admission to the United States was not legitimate, often because it was based on falsified or incorrect information, you could face deportation.
When people immigrate to the U.S., they may have arrived legally, or they may have arrived illegally. Regardless of which way they landed on U.S. soil, they can stay if they follow some very specific procedures. If you were born here but your parents were not, your family can petition to stay and petition against deportation. Here is how an immigration attorney can help.
