What Do I Do if I Have a Deportation Order?

What do I do if I have a deportation order?  If you have a deportation order but you haven’t left the United States, you might feel like you're in danger everywhere you go. Really, you are – there is a threat that you could be taken into ICE custody and physically removed. If you've said to yourself, I Was Ordered Deported, but I'm Still in the US and wondered what you should do, you're right to be concerned.  

If you have lived here for years, have family here, and can support yourself, you have to be aware that the deportation order can be executed and separate you from your family and your ability to earn a living. This year, the Trump administration began detaining and deporting even those who have been on orders of supervision for years after they received deportation orders, and people who have been ordered deported are a priority for immigration enforcement.

Immigration Lawyer in Houston: New State Department 90-Day Rule

As an immigration lawyer in Houston, I often get questions about whether a person’s visa application will be denied. Sometimes the questions are legitimate. One common example is that people want to know if applying for a job or attending a job interview without a work visa is acceptable, and if a subsequent application for a work visa will be affected by this. Generally, the answer is “no,” but we strongly recommend that anyone coming for interviews or to apply for jobs be prepared to be questioned about it at the port of entry.
