Actions to Prevent Deportation

Here are just a few of the legal strategies we use to prevent deportation:

Bond Redetermination Hearings: If you are in immigration custody on an ICE hold, our office can successfully argue that you should be released from ICE detention because you are not subject to 236(c) mandatory detention and do not pose a flight risk or danger to the community and national security.

Motions to Terminate: We argue to the Immigration Judge that the Government has failed to prove its charges of deportability or inadmissibility.

Waiver of Inadmissibility: This is a petition to allow a client to stay in the country despite the client's failure to meet all immigration requirements.

Cancellation of Removal Proceedings for Permanent Residents/212(c) waiver: We argue at the removal hearing that a client needs to keep or obtain permanent residency for humanitarian reasons, even though the client has a criminal background.

Adjustment of Status: We seek residency status for our client through connection to a U.S. citizen or permanent resident family member.

Asylum: We help clients obtain asylum where they have a reasonable fear of returning to their country.

Request for Exercise of Prosecutorial Discretion: We ask ICE to withhold prosecution for humanitarian reasons and a client's low-priority status for deportation.
