When Green Card Holders Can Be Removed

Home » Immigration Help & Resources » When Green Card Holders Can Be Removed

Legal residents, also known as Green Card Holders, have been given the right to live and work in the United States. Different from illegal aliens, who are in the US without lawful documentation, and U.S. Citizens (residents) who have legal status, Green Card Holders have been given lawful residence for the extent of their card. But even with lawful legal standing, do you know that you can still be deported?

The United States Immigration and Nationality Act (I.N.A.) has set forth numerous grounds for which Green Card Holders can be removed and returned to their country of origin if they do not comply. It is important for illegal aliens and lawful green card residents to be familiar with the guidelines that ICE and INA has set forward, to avoid the possibility of deportation.

The guidelines can be found in Section 237 of the I.N.A and apply to both legal residents and illegal immigrants, but not to U.S. Citizens. The only time these guidelines can affect a U.S. Citizen, is if fraud was committed when applying for citizenship.

Some of the restrictions that I.N.A has placed of both legal and lawful aliens are the following; any of the following actions and/or crimes can make a person deportable from the United States:

  • Marriage Fraud
  • Smuggling another illegal into the United States
  • Failure to register as a sex offender
  • Convicted of an aggravated felony
  • Convicted of a high-speed flight from an immigration checkpoint
  • Convicted of domestic violence or stalking
  • Convicted of child abuse, neglect or abandonment
  • Engages in espionage or sabotage
  • Engages in terrorist activity

These are some of several guidelines that have been given to all non-citizens. If any non-citizen (Green Card holder or not) is found guilty of any of the above guidelines, or any listed in Section 237 of the I.N.A, that person can be deported back to their country of origin.

US immigration bonds were absolutely the best they were super professional. When I was down and out when my husband was detained by immigration they were very caring , knowledgeable, and patient. I called them a thousand times and they were very empathic and helpful everytime I called. they reassures me that everything would be fine, and that they would help me my husband, and my children be reunited again. They did everything they could to get me a same day release. They exceeded my expectations. I would not recommend any company other than US immigration bonds. Us immigration bonds, under promises and over fulfills. They were a true blessing ! Thank you so much again.read more

Jeremy Wolf and his agency have been a terrific resource for me as I delve into this foreign world of bonding a friend out of jail so he and his wife can work on his case on the "outside." Jeremy has been unfailingly polite and informative and his video regarding how to complete the necessary forms was a valuable tool too. The entire process was quick and relatively easy. I especially appreciated not having to deal with a jaded, impatient, figure--it-out-yourself kind of person when I was treading in really unfamiliar territory. My questions were always answered quickly and efficiently.I highly recommend this company in your time of need for quick, efficient and professional service with no attitude or delay.read more

Jeremy Wolf, is compassionate and understanding. He has been there and done it with his own family, and together with his wife they dedicate their time and energy into helping other families come together. I know this because my husband was taken by ICE and his bond was set much higher than I could have imagined, having in my hands at any given time. ... With Jeremy, his wife and the rest of the team we were able to piece together the required 80% and set up a affordable and convient payment plan. It was a grueling process, at times I felt like I was going to loose all my hair, as I ran around selling homemade tamales, and had various other fund raisers going on, along with my husband being detained, I lost my home, my dog and my daughter and I pushed forward with the help and support of Jeremy and his team, if It wasn't for there hours of help and dedication, to put a previous bond for my nephew into action to help my husband, we wouldn't have been able to have him home for the Holidays. ... To Jeremy, Veronica, and Amber, who I spoke with often, and the other parts of the team who I was unable to catch their names, I THANK YOU, FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!read more
