Once you have obtained a nonimmigrant visa or a green card, you may be feeling a sense of reassurance, as you are now legally allowed to remain in the United States. However, the right to remain in this country is not unconditional--there are strict guidelines for immigrants who are in transition into becoming United States citizens. The foremost guideline is to avoid certain legal violations, as these can almost guarantee you lose your status and are set to be forced out of the country as soon as possible.
Grounds for deportation usually involve some sort of criminal activity or conviction, including but not limited to:
- Marriage fraud
- Attempting to illegally bring anyone else into the U.S.
- Conviction of crimes involving moral turpitude within 5 years after admission to the States
- Aggravated felony
- High-speed flight from an immigration checkpoint
- Failure to register as a sex offender
- Drug crimes or confession of drug use
- Illegally buying, selling, possessing, or engaging in transactions involving firearms, weapons, or dangerous devices
- Espionage, sabotage, treason, or sedition
- Domestic violence
- Human trafficking
- Terrorist activity
- False representation as a U.S. citizen to gain any benefit
