Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be the immigration attorney helping you today.
No, if you received a letter from the Dept of Jusitce, Immigration court, what you should do is file a Motion to Reopen this if you were never in court. The BIA will not have jurisdiction if you were not in court when the deportation order was given and the case was never appealed. That is considered an Order of Deportation in Absentia (because no one was there) and the Motion to Reopen to the court is what needs to be done. I have extensive experience with this.
Good luck to you during this process and I hope this answer has helped you!
