4. What is the difference between removal and deportation?

‘Deportation’ is a term of art that has fallen out of favor in the immigration law context as it often can connote an extrajudicial manner of being banished from the U.S.  The law as it currently stands has instead substituted the word ‘removal’ as the correct phrasing for being ordered to leave the U.S. by an immigration judge.  Please consult with a lawyer to learn whether either term is applicable to your circumstances.
