If the United States places you in removal proceedings and you are ordered to appear before an immigration judge, you may want to seek the advise of an immigration lawyer. Forms of relief that may be available to you include:
The Immigration and Nationalization Act,the INA, authorizes the grant of asylum to any alien who is a refuge. The Act defines a refugee as one who is unable or unwilling to return to his or her country “because of persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion.” An applicant may meet this definition by showing past persecution or a well-founded fear of future persecution.
In general, you may be eligible for Cancellation of Removal and adjust to the status of an alien lawfully admitted for permanent residence, if you:
(A) have been physically present in the United States for a continuous period of not less than 10 years immediately preceding the date of such application;
(B) have been a person of good moral character during such period;
(C) have not been convicted of certain crimes; and
(D) establish that removal would result in exceptional and extremely unusual hardship to the alien’s spouse, parent, or child, who is a citizen of the United States or an alien lawfully admitted for permanent residence.
Nonimmigrants who would have qualified for a green card had they applied can avoid deportation by adjusting their statuses while undergoing deportation proceedings.
Nationals of certain designated countries who have been deemed deportable may be allowed temporarily to stay in the United States until conditions in their home countries improve. Deportation usually continues, however; once TPS is lifted.
