ICE Raids for Deportation Orders in Houston

Posted on June 25, 2019 by Kathryn N. Karam


As an immigration lawyer in Houston, I have been asked several questions regarding the latest news on ICE Raids for Deportation Orders. I want to be sure that you have information about what you can do if you are concerned about friends, loved ones, or yourself.

The raids were supposed to take place Sunday, June 23rd, but were later delayed for two weeks. In tweets on June 22nd and 23rd, President Trump stated that the raids are targeted toward people who are subject to deportation orders but are not in custody – they live among in the general public.

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.

Tengo una orden de deportación pero todavía estoy en los EEUU.

Mucha gente leo la historia de Lizandro Claros Salavia de 19 años y su hermano Diego de 22 años. Los dos hermanos vinieron a los Estados Unidos en el 2009 sin autorización, y los ordenaron ser deportados. Ellos habían solicitado las estancias de remoción- básicamente pidiendo permiso discrecional para permanecer en los Estados Unidos que se da por 1-2 años a la vez.
