Deportation Defense Lawyer

Dedicated Legal Advocacy in Irvine, California

Deportation threats can be scary and overwhelming. Often times, individuals are placed into deportation after spending some time in jail. These are usually called "ICE holds" or "ICE detainers". Other times deportation is triggered by re-entering the United States, or submitting a petition to USCIS which is ultimately denied.

If you received a notice to appear before an immigration court, this means that you are in removal proceedings and you need to immediately begin building your defense with an Orange County immigration attorney who can help you protect your ability to stay in the United States.

Many reasons for deportation are described in the U.S. Immigration and Nationality Act § 237. Ashkan Yekrangi is an immigration attorney serving all major cities in Orange County and Southern California, including Irvine, Costa Mesa, Garden Grove, Newport Beach, Mission Viejo, Laguna Hills, Los Angeles, San Diego and more.

These deportable offenses include but are not limited to:

  • Certain misdemeanors
  • All felonies, whether aggravated or not
  • Fleeing an immigration checkpoint
  • Smuggling an illegal alien into the United States
  • Committing marriage fraud
  • Failure to register as a sex offender
  • Violation of certain protective orders
  • Conviction of a drug crime in any country
  • Conviction crimes involving moral turpitude
  • Involvement in human trafficking
  • Failure to notify the proper authorities regarding a change of address within 10 days
  • Engaging in or inciting terrorist activities of any kind, or appearing likely to do so
  • Participation in certain crimes such as genocide, religious persecution, recruitment of child soldiers, and Nazi persecution
  • Voting in a U.S. election illegally
  • Failure to lift the conditions on your conditional permanent residency card
