What to expect when being deported from the United States

If you are facing deportation from the United States, you are likely stressed, scared and worried, especially if you have family that is staying behind. You probably want to know when you will see them again and how long it will take to get back into the country. Let's take a look at what you should expect when being deported from the United States.

If you were detained by the police or any other agency within 100 miles of the United States border and have only been in the country for 14 days or fewer, you can be legally deported immediately. This means you will not have to appear in the immigration courts before being sent out of the country. Should you claim asylum, the claim will be reviewed and if deemed appropriate, you will then go through the court process.

If you are permitted to go through the immigration court system, it could take anywhere from months to years before you receive a proper hearing, which helps to delay deportation. It's also possible that you could be released on bond while waiting for your hearing.

You are allowed to appeal any ruling issued by the immigration court judge. An appeal could lengthen your case by at least four months. You can appeal claiming the evidence was not reviewed properly or the judge did not follow the law accordingly in issuing the ruling.

Deportation is a hot topic these days and it can cause people quite a lot of stress. You never know what might happen if you are detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents. Make sure you learn what happens when being deported so you are prepared if you are ever faced with it.
