Violators of Protection Orders Law and Legal Definition
According to 8 USCS § 1227 [Title 8. Aliens and Nationality; Chapter 12. Immigration and Nationality; Immigration; Inspection, Apprehension, Examination, Exclusion, and Removal], "violators of protection orders" means "any alien who at any time after admission is enjoined under a protection order issued by a court and whom the court determines has engaged in conduct that violates the portion of a protection order that involves protection against credible threats of violence, repeated harassment, or bodily injury to the person or persons for whom the protection order was issued is deportable. For purposes of this clause, the term "protection order" means any injunction issued for the purpose of preventing violent or threatening acts of domestic violence, including temporary or final orders issued by civil or criminal courts (other than support or child custody orders or provisions) whether obtained by filing an independent action or as a pendente lite order in another proceeding."
