Legal and illegal immigrants in the United States can be deported or removed for a variety of reasons from Concord California.

Understanding How to Avoid Deportation from Concord California

Most commonly, individuals are removed or deported after they have been arrested on unrelated criminal charges. However, officials may deport or remove persons based solely on the fact that they lack sufficient authorization to be in the country. If you have been arrested or face deportation from Concord CA, it would be prudent to learn about your legal rights.

You May Be Deported from Concord CA

Even if you are a legal U.S. immigrant, some crimes may impose a possible deportation or removal punishment for offenses in Concord, CA.

For example, one may be deported or removed based on a drug-related offense, a violent felony charge, and some other crime involving "moral turpitude," including fraud or stealing. There are a number of ways to challenge deportation or removal proceedings.

People who are in the United States for over 7 years or have reasons to seek asylum in the United States may be able to prevent being deported or removed. Some cities and states also have "safe harbor" laws that encourage state and local officials not to report individuals to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) unless Federal laws specifically compel them to. If you present your case via LegalMatch's intake system, Concord CA lawyers can examine your case and present the best possible defense against removal.

Life in Concord

Concord, California is the largest city in Contra Costa County, California. It has a population of over 122,000 people, making it one of the largest suburbs in the San Francisco Bay Area. 

Concord was founded in 1869, and was originally named "Todos Santos," meaning "All Saints." Adjacent to Concord, California is Port Chicago - a major Navy supply depot. In 1944, it was the site of one of the biggest naval disasters to ever occur on the U.S. mainland. Sailors were loading munitions onto a large cargo ship. 

The munitions on the ship detonated, causing a massive explosion, killing 320 sailors and civilians - most of them African-American. This led to over 200 African-American sailors refusing to load munitions due to unsafe working conditions, resulting in the largest mutiny trial in U.S. Navy history, in which 50 men were convicted. Thurgood Marshall, a lawyer and future Supreme Court justice, sat in on most of the proceedings and claimed that they were prejudiced against the defendants. The men were sentenced to long prison terms, but were released after a few years. These events led to the Navy hastening its desegregation plans, and making efforts to improve working conditions.

Several lawyers from in and around Concord, California were likely involved in these proceedings.

If you live in Concord, California, and are in need of legal advice, the lawyers of Concord, California can help. A Concord, California attorney can probably assist you with virtually any legal issue you're likely to face.
