Deportation is ordered by an Immigration Judge without any punishment being imposed or contemplated.
Removal is an expulsion of an alien from the United States based on grounds of inadmissibility or deportability. Removal function is managed by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
It is well established that the Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution entitled aliens to due process of law in deportation proceedings applicable to all “persons” within the United States, whether their presence here is lawful, unlawful, temporary, or permanent.
Persons subject to removal are generally entitled to release on bond unless they are subject to mandatory detention on criminal or terrorist grounds, or are an “arriving alien.” Department of Homeland Security (DHS) must decide within 48 hours of arrest or, in the case of an emergency or other extraordinary circumstance, “within an additional reasonable period of time,” whether the person will remain in custody or be released.
Removal proceedings are initiated by the DHS filing a Notice to Appear (NTA) with the Office of the Immigration Judge. The law requires that NTA (with notice of all charges) be given in person, or if personal service is not practicable, by mail to the respondent or his counsel of record. When a final order of removal is made, DHS shall have only 90 days to effectuate removal.
