In Ohio, any individual that breaks criminal or immigration laws and lack legal U.S. resident status may be subject to federal deportation. When deportation occurs, the removed individual's ability to reenter the country legally may be diminished.
Individuals that are subject to deportation include anyone who is residing in the U.S. illegally, who has entered the country under false pretenses, who has been convicted of certain criminal charges or who does not possess current legal status to reside in the U.S. The legal process of deportation affords individuals certain rights, including the right to contest the removal. Grounds for dispute could be based on constitutional or procedural arguments.
