How Can I Avoid Being Deported?

If you enjoy my blogposts, please give me a like by clicking on the heart above. Thank you and happy reading. 

Before a tornado warning, one prepares a storm shelter. Before a hurricane, one buys canned food and bottled water. One must prepare for the terrible new beginnings. Before the presidential election in November 2024, read below to learn how to avoid being deported.

Last time Donald Trump was president, (on July 22, 2019, to be precise) he tried to deport hundreds of thousands of people. His fast-track policy was targeted at ANYONE who did not have “legal status” and had been in the United States for more than two years. He was stopped by a federal judge.

He learned his lesson, appointed over 200 new federal judges, and is ready again. On May 1, 2024, Trump explained to Time Magazine his detailed plan to deport between 15 and 20 million “undocumented” people if he wins the 2024 election. 

Filing for asylum is one of the fastest ways that an undocumented person can obtain legal status, get a work permit, and avoid being deported. Due to backlogs, the asylum case will be pending way beyond 2028, way after Trump is a distant bad memory. Blandon Law attorneys have been winning asylum cases for over 20 years. The one-year filing deadline does NOT always apply; we have won asylum for persons 17 years after entering the United States. 

Will I Be Deported with DACA?

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was created in June 2012 by former President Barack Obama. Dreamers, as foreigners with approved DACA are known, can lose that status at any time. Trump tried to end DACA the first time he was president, in September 2017. The Supreme Court gave him a win and forbid the US Citizenship and Immigration Service from granting DACA applications. The Supreme Court stopped him from ending DACA completely only because Trump did not end DACA correctly. Now, Trump knows how to end DACA. Reliable sources insist that Dreamers should prepare now to become undocumented in the future.

Is There a 10-Year Ban Against Deportations?

A 10-year ban against deportation does not exist. If a foreigner has been in the US for over 10 years AND meets other requirements, they can ask the Immigration Judge not to deport them by filing for Cancellation of Removal. BUT many immigration judges deny those Cancellation of Removal requests. Similarly, a foreigner CAN be deported even if they have a US citizen spouse or a US citizen child. Remember: immigration judges are CHOSEN by the president. So, if the sitting president is hostile to foreigners, the immigration judges likely will reflect that xenophobic attitude.

If you or someone you know is undocumented or has DACA, please call +1 954.385.0157 for a consultation. Prepare for the worst and, if you can, vote for the best.
