Garden City Immigration Law Attorneys – (516) 806-4070
Recent efforts from the federal government, most notably the executive
branch, have increased the number of deportation orders and removal orders
issued to people who have entered the country illegally or who do not
have the proper paperwork. The United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement
(ICE) is tasked with ensuring anyone who has been ordered to leave the
country do so according to set time limits. Otherwise, the deportation
will become forced and the immigrant’s problems will multiply.
Kapoor Law Firm and our immigration lawyers in Garden City have years of
experience helping people appeal their deportation orders and stay within
the U.S. If you or a family member have been handed a deportation order,
contact us as soon as you can to start talking about your
appeal options during a free
initial case evaluation.
Board of Immigration Appeals Hearing & Arguments
People facing deportation often have the right to try to stop the removal
but do not know where to begin. Even undocumented immigrants can attempt
to stay within the country through various means. In most cases, the appeal
process begins by filing a complaint with the Department of Homeland Security
(DHS), which should be processed through the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA).
The BIA has the authority to extend the time you are permitted to stay
within the country, cancel deportation orders, and even protect you from
any future ICE efforts to deport you. It manages appeals on a case-by-case
basis and often does it solely by reviewing the appeal on paper. You might
not be able to schedule a hearing before the BIA but you should still
prepare your appeal with an immigration attorney’s help to make
it as effective as possible.
Your argument to stop your deportation might need to prove one or more
of the following:
- Your removal is unlawful due to your immigrant status.
- Your removal will put you or your family in immediate physical danger.
- ICE agents illegally detained you in order to deliver the deportation order.
- The original deportation order was invalid.
For people who are undocumented, the BIA might not even read the appeal
to stop the deportation. The better solution may be attempting to adjust
your status to receive a legal visa or lawful permanent resident (LPR)

Stop Your Deportation with a Well-Made Appeal
You do not have much time to lose if ICE has already targeted you for removal
from the country. While it is true some parties are permitted to stay
in the country for months or more before removal, some people face near-immediate
deportation. Start thinking about how you can appeal and stop it right now by
contacting Kapoor Law Firm and our Garden City immigration lawyers.
Never attempt to resist ICE detainment or an arrest conducted by a police officer
carrying out ICE orders. Doing so is a crime and can place your safety
