Foreign nationals may be removable from the United States for violations including failure to abide by the terms and conditions of admission or engaging in crimes such as violent crimes, document and benefit fraud, terrorist activity, and drug smuggling. In general, all legal permanent residents are given the opportunity to present their case before an immigration judge. Aliens who have entered without inspection (EWI) are entitled to a removal hearing before an immigration judge unless they fall in the category of "arriving aliens". http://ow.ly/DQL42
When an immigrant is ordered removed, the Attorney General requires him or her to leave the United States within a three month (90 day) period. The removal time frame begins on the latest of the following:
- The date the order of removal is finalized;
- The date of the court’s final order after a judicial review;
- If the alien is detained or imprisoned, the date the alien is released from detention.
