Your presence in this country is up to the United States Government. Along with the courts, they have the final say about who can remain here. That does not mean that you are completely without legal rights. Working with a deportation defense attorney, you can present your own case of why the government is wrong when they start deportation proceedings. The stakes of this process could not be higher.
Here are the relevant steps of the deportation process:
When it comes to the hearing in front of the judge, ICE may try to make its case why the immigration court should grant its removal request. It is up to you to make your arguments why ICE is wrong or why the law would still allow you to remain in the U.S. The judge cannot do this for you. This is why you need a deportation defense attorney who knows the law.
These are some of the arguments that could be used to oppose the deportation request:
In the end, you could also make a direct appeal to the judge that justice would not be served by granting deportation. An experienced deportation attorney knows how to address the court and the arguments that may move judges. The consequences are high for not coming to the table with an attorney.
