The following is an incomplete list of notable individuals that have been deported from the United Statesmarker. The Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement of the United States Department of Homeland Securitymarker handles deportation in the United States. Aside from the Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798 there was no applicable deportation law in the United States until an 1882 statute specifically geared towards Chinese immigrants. The Alien and Sedition Acts gave the President of the United States the power to arrest and subsequently deport any alien that he deemed as dangerous. The 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act was designed to suspend Chinese immigration to the United States, and deport Chinese residents that were termed as illegally residing in the country. The types of individuals that could be deported from the United States was later reclassified to include those who were insane or carrying a disease, convicts, prostitutes, those entering the United States over the immigration quotas, anarchists, and those that belonged to organizations which supported the overthrow of the United States government by use of violence.

Legislation enacted by the United States Congress in 1891 gave a time limit of one year after an alien entered the country for the individual to be deported and decreased judicial review of deportation proceedings. The office of superintendent of immigration in the Department of the Treasury was also created with the 1891 enactment, and this responsibility later passed to the Immigration and Naturalization Service in the United States Department of Justicemarker. During the Red Scare in 1919, a number of persons were deported under suspicion of illegal activity. The statute of limitations on deportation from the United States was removed under the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952. Deportation laws were cited during the 1950s in order to remove union leaders and alleged members of the Communist party said to be illegal immigrants to the country. According to Funk & Wagnalls New World Encyclopedia, about 23,000 aliens were deported annually from the country during the latter period of the 1980s.

Subsequent to the establishment of the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996, deportation and exclusion began to be referred to as "removal" proceedings. If an individual is deemed by the government to be removable, they will receive a removal order and then are required to leave the United States. Any individual that is not a United States citizen can be deported from the country. Those individuals that illegally immigrated to the United States constitute the single largest portion of people deported from the country. Once deported, an alien is not allowed to reenter the country unless given special permission to do so by the United States Attorney General. The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency placed 164,000 criminals into deportation proceedings in 2007, and estimated that figure would be 200,000 for 2008. In 2001 approximately 73,000 illegal immigrants with criminal convictions were deported from the United States, and in 2007 this figure was 91,000.
