Who is at risk?

  • The law allows the federal government to deport certain immigrants, including:

    • Undocumented people (anyone without lawful immigration status)

    • People with status (e.g., lawful permanent residents, refugees and visa holders) who have certain criminal convictions

  • You may be at risk even if:

    • Your conviction happened many years ago;

    • You didn’t serve time in jail;

    • Your case was minor or a misdemeanor;

    • You only received a ticket or paid a fine;

    • You’ve had a green card for a long time and/or

    • All the other members of your family are US Citizens or Lawful Permanent Residents. 

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is one of the federal government agencies responsible for deporting people.
