How does the deportation process work?

People come to the United States from all over the world seeking the American dream. Many come from destitute and squalor or countries plagued with tyranny with the hope of creating better lives for themselves and their families.

In the recent out-of-state case, the woman who filed the premises liability lawsuit claimed that she was at a dormitory on the university campus one day. As she was using the stairs located between the building's third and second floors, she reportedly slipped on some type of substance present on the stairs.

All of a sudden, the truck went over the highway's grassy median. The semi-truck then crashed into a pickup truck that was going west.
