SINCE 2006, RAVI HAS BEEN FIGHTING HIS DEPORTATION
Ravi was detained and ordered deported by an immigration judge
—without a hearing— based on the old conviction.
Because his conviction was considered an “aggravated felony” under
immigration law, he was not able to present evidence to the judge
about his character and community ties.
Unjust immigration laws does not stop Ravi Ragbir from advocating
for immigrant community members. He educates and empowers
those facing or fighting deportation while he fights his own. Ravi
teaches citizens and non-citizens advocacy without confrontation.
