Crime and Illegal Immigrants: What Is at Stake
- If you are in the US illegally, living and working without a green card, and are charged with a crime such as disorderly conduct, drug possession or DUI, you most likely will be detained on immigration issues.
- If convicted, you will be deported and unable to return to the United States for a period of 10 years. If caught returning to the US, you may face 10 years in federal prison.
- Serious crimes are referred to as crimes of moral turpitude and considered bars to successful immigration.
Protecting Clients from Deportation
At Laguna Reyes Maloney, LLP, we understand the difficulties illegal immigrants charged with crimes face — deportation may mean separation from a family you support or a return to unemployment and poverty. Our Criminal Defense lawyers work with both local enforcement officials and the INS in order to get charges changed from being crimes of moral turpitude to lesser charges. In today’s political climate, US immigration policies are subject to frequent changes. Our firm keeps itself apprised of and up-to-date on immigration law and helps provide solutions to the serious implications of being charged with a crime as an immigrant.
