English term or phrase:deportee
According to various of my references, a deportee is
- A deported person.
- One forced to emigrate, usually for political reasons
- expelled from home or country by authority
My question is:
Can this term be also used for a person who has not yet been deported but is under deportation proceedings? Is there any other term (e.g. (sic?)deportant)?
