Deportation is the formal removal of an alien (immigrant) from the United States when the immigrant has been found removable for violating the immigration laws. Deportation is ordered by an immigration judge without any punishment being imposed or contemplated.
There are several reasons for the U.S. immigration authorities to deport an immigrant. One of the most obvious is that the immigrant simply did not have a right to be in the United States to begin with, having crossed the border or otherwise entered illegally, or stayed beyond the departure date required by his or her visa.
