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.
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.
