When the government accuses a person of being in the United States unlawfully, or accuses a person of being "inadmissible" or "removable," removal proceedings will be initiated by an arrest or an NTA (Notice to Appear). The Notice to Appear will have a court date or a court date will later be mailed to the person. It is extremely important to appear at that court date. Failure to appear will result in an order of removal in abstentia, or without your presence. This means that any defenses to removal that would have been available may no longer be available.
