Immigration Removal Defense

Removal proceedings constitute the mechanism by which the government attempts to force the removal of a foreign national from the United States. Removal proceedings are initiated by the Department of Homeland Security and are prosecuted by their attorneys with the Office of Chief Counsel. Removal cases are decided by immigration judges within the Department Of Justice Executive Office of Immigration Review.

A person may be placed into immigration proceedings following arrest for a criminal violation, upon the denial of an immigration benefit, upon seeking admission into the U.S., or on any other determination that an individual is in the United States in violation of the law.
