Former soldier deported to Mexico

Immigrants living in Colorado or elsewhere may be deported if they lose their legal status even if they have served in the military. A 39-year-old man was deported back to Mexico after his application for citizenship was denied because of a previous felony drug conviction. The man had arrived in the United States legally as a child, but he chose to continually renew his green card rather than become a citizen.

Detainees sue ICE over detention

Immigrants in Colorado may face deportation even if they have lawful permanent residence status. If immigrants are convicted of criminal offenses, they may be subjected to deportation and removal proceedings. Recently, a lawsuit was filed in California against the Immigration and Customs Enforcement on behalf of a number of Vietnamese immigrants who are currently being detained.

Community support helps man avoid deportation

Many immigrants in Colorado and across the country are facing increased concerns about the threat of deportation and removal. However, the case of one active veteran provides some inspiration of the possibility of avoiding deportation through community action and involvement. One man who was born in Pakistan and lived in Australia before coming to the United States has been engaged for nine years in a battle to stop his deportation.

DACA unlikely to go away anytime soon

In September 2017, President Trump announced that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program would cease to exist on March 5, 2018. The program provides protection for those living in Colorado and other states who were brought to the country when they were young. However, those who are part of the program may still be protected from deportation and allowed to work in the country for the foreseeable future.
