Immigrants without lawful status and even some permanent residents can face deportation. Removal, also known as deportation, is a court proceeding where a judge determines whether an immigrant may remain in the United States. If an order of removal is entered, the immigrant may appeal their case. Those who are deported are barred from returning to the U.S. anywhere from a period of 5 years to permanently. Although anyone facing removal proceedings has the right to be represented by a lawyer, there are no court-appointed attorneys in immigration court, meaning that it is your responsibility.
