Question: Why would someone be deported from the United States?

Answer: In simple terms, a person would normally be deported or removed from the United States if they do not have legal status. That can be whether they entered without authorization or they overstayed, if they stayed too long past the length of their status, or if they’ve had their status taken away for some reason—for example, if you have committed a certain type of crime, then you might be removed if you had a valid status at the time.
