As the numbers of deported individuals in New Jersey fluctuates, legal immigrants need to be aware of their rights and the importance of providing application support documentation.
United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) conducted 185,884 removals during FY 2020 which was a 30 percent decrease from FY 2019. The decrease represented a notable decline at the Southwest border due to the use of authority under 42 U.S.C. §§ 265 and 268, to expel aliens from the United States to prevent the introduction of COVID19. The majority of ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) interior removals, approximately 92 percent, had criminal convictions, or pending criminal charges. Despite the overall decrease in removals, ICE ERO assisted CBP with 17,000 air charter 5 expulsions under Title 42, and also saw increases in removals to several countries that were previously uncooperative with removal efforts. If you, or a loved one are facing a risk of deportation for any reason, contact an experienced immigration law attorney as soon as possible to explore options to stave off deportation efforts.
