Are you a Pennsylvania resident facing deportation?

Any number of issues can arise to cause legal problems for those who emigrated from other countries of origin to live in Pennsylvania. If you happen to overstay your visa or have been charged with a traffic violation or criminal offense, your plans to build a new, successful lifestyle may be temporarily or permanently put on hold. Facing deportation can be stressful and frightening.

There are currently many immigrants living, working and going to school in Pennsylvania. Many reside in neighborhoods where several other immigrants make their homes as well.

Pennsylvania immigrants currently concerned about their legal statuses may want to closely follow a case in another state. A 33-year-old man who came to the United States some 14 years ago was recently arrested by immigration officers at a Greyhound bus station.

He now sits in an immigration detention facility, at risk for deportation.

Many Pennsylvania families include members who emigrated from other countries. While many of them spent weeks (even months or years) preparing the appropriate documents and navigating the immigration system before crossing the border, others' situations were much more acute, landing them on United States soil without proper legal statuses. In either situation, an immigrant may still be at risk for detainment, as made evident by the filled-to-capacity immigration detention centers throughout the nation.

Immigrant who escaped wildfires now worried about deportation

Man's deportation left family struggling to survive

Many Pennsylvania immigrants are currently facing serious legal problems. Some have been threatened with deportation and are worried they may never see their families again.

Deportation worries continue to rise throughout the nation

Many immigrants in Pennsylvania say they are living in fear that they will be taken into custody by immigration officers, simply because of their countries of origin.
