Immigration Removal Hearing
Deportation is a potential consequence of criminal charges or a conviction, depending on the nature of the offense and the particular circumstances of the case. The most common reason for removal or deportation is the commission of a felony offense by an immigrant who is not a legal citizen of the United States. In some cases involving aggravated felonies, terrorist activities or drug crimes, an immigrant may still face deportation.
The Purpose of a Hearing
There are a number of steps that are taken when an immigrant is put at risk of deportation. A notice will first be sent to those in question from the Department of Homeland Security, however, the process for a person under arrest can differ. A removal hearing will be one of the steps in the deportation process during which the person in question will have their case reviewed to determine if they are in fact subject to be removed from the country. The hearing process will discuss the reasons a person is being considered for deportation and if the alien is suspected of a
crime this will be evaluated. Some immigrants that are taken into custody may have the option of being released through an
immigration bond hearing while their case proceeds.
