Reasons for Deportation

The USA takes these immigration and deportation matters very seriously. Deportation occurs due to one of these reasons:

  • The person violated the terms of their immigration agreement.
  • Being charged with a serious offense that goes against the laws of the society and the Government of USA.
  • The immigrant failed to cope with the US authorities regarding his or her immigration status. Or he/she may have submitted forged documents.
  • Posing a threat to the society and the Government is one of the biggest reason immigrants get deported. It also includes terrorist activities and involvement.

Is It Possible To Reenter The US After Deportation?

Once a person gets deported, it is difficult that the US would allow him or her to enter again. But it is not impossible. Just like there are loose ends in a perfectly knit sweater, there are some in the process of immigration and deportation to the USA. Even though you get deported, the possibility is that you still have a valid passport.

Know the Length of Your Deportation Time

Your deportation time depends on the intensity of your committed crime or the reason behind violating the law. The first thing you need to figure out is how to get a visa after being deported. People usually get deported for a time period of 5, 10, 20 or a lifetime. If you get a short period before you can reenter the US, it is in your favor to apply for the Visa again as soon as the time of your deportation is near. Applying for a visa after deportation might be tricky.

Be Organized – Keep all Your Documentation

It will be necessary for you to keep the records at their ease and your hassle. You will be interviewed more critically than other candidates will. American embassy would make sure that the person does not intend to portray any harm to the society or the government. However, as mentioned before, you need to be prepared for the consequences. You need to ask yourself what happens if you get deported and come back? The chances are that you would be kept under strict surveillance. You must be asked to report back and forth to them so they get to keep a close eye on your activities. Moreover, the would require you to work and it is highly likely that the job assigned by them would not be up to the previous position you were working in. In addition to that, the residence issue might also pop up once you come back after deportation. It is advisory to run a background check into the matters, thoroughly.

Weigh Your Options and Risks

Can a deported person come back legally by marrying a citizen? One way of re-entering the US is through marrying a US citizen. In most cases, a person who is married to US citizen  is eligible to enter the US after deportation but there is a process to undergo when it comes to matters like these. The deported person needs to get an attorney on his or her side. With the assigned attorney, a waiver of inadmissibility must be applied for. It contains the details of both the married pupils. This is probably one of the easiest and yet hardest ways to reenter the USA after you have been put in the deported list.

It is necessary to note that deported immigrants can return to America after their deportation but it takes patience and time. If not taken slowly and one step at a time, things might turn the other way. In extreme cases, the Government gets involved and may lead to severe punishments like jail and being permanently barred from entering the US. Lastly, illegal reentry after deportation is also one way to ponder on. It does come with its risks and as mentioned earlier. Also, it may lead to severe punishment with no escape.

To sum up, being careful in these matters is highly advised. Do not forget to run a thorough check on the options available to you as these matters tend to cause serious trouble.

The Fall of U.S. Tourism

Statue of Liberty New York

The Fall of U.S. Tourism

Tourism industry all around the world is flourishing. More and more countries are in competition. The United States is actually lagging behind and, what is more, it is even facing a decline in tourism business. This is an alarming situation for the US in terms of its popularity as well as the economy. The lesser the tourists in the US, the more people reach out to other countries and develop a good name for them. This is worrisome for the government, tourism, travel and retail companies in the US. International tourists prefer other countries and enjoy spending their money there. It leads to even lesser tourism and economy in America.

Strict VISA Standards

A large portion of tourism companies faced major loss, which is why the United States Government launched a Coalition to request the Government authorities to support their needs and save them from any further disaster that may come in the upcoming years.

  • This unfortunate wave of falling tourism in USA started from early 2017 when the United States themselves permitted only 40 million international tourists, which were a lot less than previous years. This is a worrying situation for the economy of the United States, which already needs assistance, and are now losing a part of it, which they earned through tourism.
  • There is also the very strict list of terms and conditions for tourists who want to visit the US, such as no liquid policy, laptop ban, and even some social media accounts for VISA, which makes it inevitably disturbing to the tourists who want to come to America. This is one of the major points why US tourism is falling.

Growing Economy and Competition among the World

While United States tourism is declining, the competition around the world is increasing more than ever. Countries are dedicating their efforts to refine their economies and make their tourism industry better so that the economy of the country can rise up. People all around the world plan to go to smaller countries which scenic sites so it also stays on their budget, rather than spending dollars in the States.
According to the reports of the United Nations World Tourism Organization, a total number of 1.32 billion people travelled in the last year (2017-2018) which is the most number of tourists than almost a decade. All continents have reported an increase in the tourism industry, whereas the US tourism industry is failing to keep its ground. The tourism and travel company executives stress about the US market stocks and shares because of lesser arrival of tourists and less expenditure in the US.

Trump’s Influence on Tourism

The most important factor that influenced the decline of tourism in the US is the influence of Donald Trump. He banned the permit of many Muslim countries and blocked their citizens to travel to the US. This fueled a fire around the world regarding the decision making and hospitality of the United States Government. Although Trump tried to validate his ban because of terrorism and threats to the US, people all around the world were automatically discouraged to travel to a country that has unfair bans. The fun part about the situation is that even after this ban if any time the US faced any terrorism act, it was never on part of the banned countries.

Due to this, the United States is one of the only two countries that faces a drop in tourism just behind Turkey, whereas all other countries have reported an increase. The reason for Turkey remains the same as well; they choose their tourists rather than lowering their strict guards and accommodating tourists. Turkey doesn’t ban any country but chooses its tourists. Along with few travelers, automatically the expenditure also reduced by 3 percent that is equal to 4.6 billion dollars, according to Commerce reports. International tourists are extremely important for the economy of a country as they spend on hotels, food, and retailers in a country. If there are less or no tourists, the economy faced a major loss of money, which cannot be equaled any other way.
