United States deported more than 256,000 people in 2018 and millions more, including legal permanent residents, could potentially be at risk for removal proceedings, formerly known as deportation. There are multiple reasons why a person may be facing removal or may be at risk for removal from the United States.

In immigration court, the difference between winning and losing can mean the difference between staying with family in the U.S. or being forced to leave the country and separated from family.
