The Law Offices of Alice Antonovsky, PLLC takes pride in helping its clients legalize their status in the United States, apply for the right kind of visa and keep their families together through the most suitable application method.

According to reports from the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the U.S. deported over 256,000 immigrants in the fiscal year 2018. Under President Trump’s administration, the number of deported migrants has increased. In fact, this deportation figure is the highest in the past decade. The U.S. government has not only deported undocumented individuals but also lawful permanent residents (Green Card holders). As foreign citizens, many wonder, “Why could I be deported?” Here are the most common causes of deportation:

  • Entering the U.S. illegally
  • Committing serious crimes such as murder, rape, drug trafficking, or weapons trafficking
  • Using fake documents to obtain a visa
  • Overstaying the allowed time in the U.S.
  • Facing accusations of domestic violence
  • Committing marriage fraud

Deportation is a very serious matter. If you sense immigration issues, consult with an experienced immigration lawyer to understand the immigration consequences and help avoid deportation. Depending on the case, removal can be halted, deportation canceled, discretionary relief sought, political asylum requested, adjustment of status pursued, voluntary departure taken, among other legal measures. It is crucial to be properly informed about the possibility of seeking forgiveness, also known as a waiver or permission. The deportation process can be complex and stressful. If you or a loved one is facing potential deportation, schedule a confidential consultation immediately with your trusted attorney, Alice Antonovsky. Call us today at +1 (212) 729 5720.

President Trump’s administration reported a total of 1,091,130 people with final removal orders, of which 14,442 were detained, and 1,076,688 were not, according to an article published in the Wall Street Journal.

Recent data from the Department of Justice shows that approximately 60% to 75% of non-detained immigrants have appeared in court to face immigration judicial proceedings.

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) needs documents from the country of origin to deport a foreigner, so immigrants often end up detained, awaiting a deportation flight. The adult detainee population in June 2019 is 53,141, although there is only a budget for 45,000.

In fiscal year 2023, the U.S. government executed the expulsion of 142,580 undocumented individuals, marking a significant increase that nearly doubles the figures from the previous fiscal year, according to the report from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

The figures reveal a striking landscape between October 1, 2022, and September 30, 2023, where deportations surged, surpassing the 72,177 recorded in fiscal year 2022. Notably, within these statistics, 62,545 deportations were carried out under Title 42, an emergency measure allowing expedited expulsions from the border, which was suspended in May of this year, marking a significant turning point.

In comparison, 65,076 deportation orders were issued in fiscal year 2022, highlighting the magnitude of the changes implemented in immigration policies. These statistics not only reflect numbers but also the direct impact on the lives of those affected by these processes.


Deportation, more than a legal process, is an event that resonates in every corner of the lives of those who experience it. Deportation can have devastating consequences for both individuals and their families. The deported may be separated from their loved ones, leading to significant emotional distress. Additionally, they may lose their jobs, leading to financial difficulties and the inability to support their families. In their country of origin, they may face discrimination, violence, and other forms of persecution they initially fled from. In some cases, they may be deported to a country with which they no longer have a significant connection.


Facing deportation can be overwhelming, but it is essential that each individual understands and bravely defends their rights. Here, we break down the rights of immigrants on this complicated journey, creating a crucial map that empowers them against legal challenges:

  1. Right to a Lawyer: The Strength of Legal RepresentationEvery immigrant has the fundamental right to be represented by a lawyer during deportation proceedings. Although, unlike criminal proceedings, the government is not obligated to provide a lawyer for those who cannot afford one, we stress the importance of seeking this legal assistance. An experienced attorney can be the cornerstone to build a strong defense and make your voice heard in immigration court.
  2. Right to Remain Silent: The Power of Legal Self-CareIn the face of adversity, immigrants have the valuable right to remain silent. This right allows them to avoid answering questions that may be used against them. In a process where every word can carry significant weight, the right to remain silent becomes a powerful tool to safeguard one’s legal position.
  3. Right to Refuse to Sign Documents: Protecting Your Immigration StatusImmigrants not only have the right to remain silent but also the right to refuse to sign documents without the presence of a lawyer. The importance of this right lies in the ability to avoid legal commitments that may have serious consequences for immigration status. Prudence and caution when signing any document are key to safeguarding the future.
  4. Right to a Hearing Before an Immigration Judge: The Stage for Fair Defense:At the heart of the process, immigrants have the vital right to present their case before an immigration judge. This judge will determine whether they have the right to remain in the United States. This hearing offers the opportunity to present arguments, submit evidence, and fight for justice. We advocate for this right as the essence of a legal system that should ensure fair defense for every individual, regardless of their origin.




The deportation process in the United States, although guided by legal regulations, unfolds as an intricate and multi-layered journey. It all begins when the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issues the critical Notice to Appear (NTA), formally announcing the initiation of the deportation process. The affected person is summoned to appear before an immigration judge, marking the start of a complex legal path.

In the initial hearing, the judge outlines the charges and legal rights to the individual. They are given the valuable opportunity to hire a lawyer, although unlike criminal proceedings, the government does not assume this responsibility in cases of financial difficulties. Here, in our offices, we become the guiding light, offering the necessary support for each individual to fully exercise their rights.

The ability to request relief from deportation, such as asylum, cancellation of removal, or adjustment of status, adds a critical component to the process. If relief is granted, the opportunity to stay in the United States is provided, allowing for continuity in the person’s life. In contrast, denial results in the issuance of a final deportation order, marking the sad farewell to a place that was once home.




Immigration policy in the United States has undergone several changes in recent years. These changes have affected various areas, such as asylum, deportation, detention, and eligibility for certain immigration benefits.

Illustrating these changes, policies restricting individuals’ ability to seek asylum at the U.S. border have been implemented, challenging the narrative of hope and refuge. Simultaneously, grounds for considering an individual deportable have been expanded, intensifying tensions in an already strained system. In this dynamic backdrop, it is crucial for immigrants to be fully informed about these transformations and understand how they might affect their immigration status.

Here, at the Law Offices of Alice Antonovsky, we recognize the importance of having a reliable guide in the midst of these tumultuous waters. An immigration lawyer not only provides advice but also up-to-date guidance, ensuring that each individual can make informed and strategic decisions amid these constantly evolving changes.
