  1. Introduction

    The severity of banishment is determined by the specific situation of the affected person. Few civil penalties surpass the effect that deportation has for numerous aliens, their families and communities. The expulsion of a noncitizen from the US may entail prolonged or perpetual separation from family, serious economic poverty and the likelihood of punishment in the country of return. Deportation controls aim to evacuate from US society the resident aliens who pose threats or elude regulations. (Cade, 2017)

  2. Literature Review

    Current deportation practices differ in significant measure, and are contingent noticeably on state resources. The expansion of border control and circumscribed types of penality exhibit elaborate links between citizenship (Mihaila et al., 2016), penal power and social eviction which are uniformly, or even more manifest, in societies (Nica, 2017) which have been historically regarded as less corrective and devoted to human rights. Because prisons and detention facilities hold growing amounts of aliens for deportation, they elucidate the uncertainty of rights and inclusion for all individuals. (Bosworth et al., 2017)

  3. Methodology

    Using data from Centre for Immigration Studies,, Full Fact, Pew Research Centre, The Economist, and US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, we performed an analysis and made estimates regarding unauthorized immigrants by length of residence in the US and criminal alien deportations from the interior, deportations by criminal status, aliens with final removal orders from select recalcitrant or non-cooperative foreign countries, foreign national prison population and number of foreign national offenders removed by the Home Office, and removals and returns of illegal immigrants. Migration law legalizes entry at the border and criminal law legalizes the conduct of citizens and residents (Mihaila, 2017) within borders. Whereas a citizen is granted the shield of the criminal law justice system when doing something illegal, an alien in the same situation is liable to deportation regardless of any other links with the country. (Hoang and Reich, 2017)

  4. Results and Discussion

    The legal regime regulating banishment for a crime is concomitantly intricate and sound. An uncomplicated and firm deportation rule may put forward valid assistance by defense counsel and improve the unambiguousness (Popescu, 2017) and lawfulness (Dusmanescu et al., 2016) of the US immigration system...
