Deportation is a practice that has been used throughout history in both fair and unfair instances. The legal definition of deportation is “removal”. In the United States, deportation occurs when the federal government orders the removal of a non-citizen from the country. These orders are usually the result of the immigrant violating criminal or immigration laws in the U.S.

Adjustment of Status

The Adjustment of Status primarily depends on immigrants meeting specific criteria and being placed into a specific immigrant category. After the criteria have been met the applicant is eligible to become a permanent U.S. resident. Adjustment of Status does not require the applicant to travel abroad in pursuit of an immigrant visa.


The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), created by the Congress, established a set list of requirements to regulate the process of U.S. citizenship being granted to a foreign citizen or national. Immigrants who fulfill the INA requirements are legally permitted to become voluntary U.S. citizens.
