Grounds of Inadmissibility and Deportability:
Grounds of inadmissibility provide various reasons why a person may be denied admission into the U.S. or be removed from the country. Grounds of Deportability are reasons by which a person can be removed from the county. Some of the grounds of inadmissibility include health related grounds, such as having a communicable disease or certain mental/physical disorders.
Some other grounds of deportability which exist against persons already admitted to the U.S. include among others, persons who have committed specific crimes including domestic violence and certain drug related crimes, persons violating their non-immigrant visa status, persons who enter into fraudulent marriages for immigration purposes and falsification of documents.
In terms of deportation, aggravated felony crimes have extremely harsh immigration consequences. For example a person convicted of any offense related to controlled substances will be deemed deportable. This area of the law is very technical and an immigration professional should be consulted to understand specific situations and conduct adequate analysis.
