Deportation cases

This group is dedicated to the cases of international adoptees, who face deportation or have been deported to their country of birth, because they have been convicted of criminal activity.
 
Since the Child Citizen Act (2000), international adoptees automatically receive US citizenship, though the law doesn't apply in retrospect to those adoptees adopted before 2000. So there are many, now adult, international adoptees who don't have American citizenship. To them the 1996 Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act applies. This law implies deportation of non-citizens for criminal records where they are sentenced to 1 year or more of prison time.

Several international adoptees, most of them having lived almost of all of their lives in the USA, are facing deportation and some already have been deported. A list of the cases can be found here.
