Removal Proceedings and Deportation
We assist individuals and families in removal proceedings to identify and address obstacles to remaining in the United States. Removal hearings are held to determine whether detainees may be subject to removal from the United States. There is no longer any distinction between exclusion (denial of entry) and deportation (ordered departure) proceedings. Foreign nationals subject to exclusion or removal by the United States are now all placed in removal proceedings. Therefore, a removal proceeding is now generally the sole procedure for determining whether an alien may enter the United States, should be deported, or is eligible for relief from exclusion or removal.
