Any violation of the Immigration and Nationality Act can result in removal of lawful permanent residents and other non U.S. citizens. These grounds for removal include the following:
- Failure to maintain status;
- Termination of conditional residence status
- Inadmissibility at the time of entry or adjustment of status
- Falsification of immigration documents
- Marriage fraud;
- Violent crimes;
- Drug-related crimes;
- Domestic abuse;
- Firearm violations; and
Cancellation of Removal
If an individual has grounds for filing cancellation of removal (as described below), a judge will weigh the pros and cons of allowing them to stay in the country. Factors include whether the individual has close family in the U.S., a positive work history, if they pay their taxes, if they have business property in the U.S., and whether or not they have a good moral character.
- Green card holders—Lawful permanent residents can file for cancellation of removal if they have been in a permanent residence for at least five years, have lived in the U.S. for seven years after having been admitted in any status, or they have not been convicted of an aggravated felony.
- Non permanent residents—Non permanent residents can file for cancellation of removal if:
- They have been in the U.S. for at least 10 years;
- They were a person of good moral character during that time period;
- They have not been convicted of certain criminal offenses; or
- They are able to show that deportation would cause exceptional and extremely unusual hardship for the applicant’s spouse, parent, or child, and that person is also a U.S. citizen or has lawful permanent residence.

Some deportations carried out each year are unlawful. The U.S. has a long history of illegal deportations; back in the 1920s and 1930s, nearly two million people were removed in unlawful raids and deportations, according to the Atlantic. In other cases, ICE may have legal grounds to deport you or your loved one, but there still may be a legal recourse you can take.
