Many criminal charges — even misdemeanors — can result in deportation or removal. Even if a plea results in a lesser charge, the individual may still be vulnerable to action by the Immigration and Naturalization Services department. It is critical for aliens or immigrants of any status to seek the service of an attorney who knows the consequences of all criminal charges.
Criminal charges that can result in removal, even for legal, documented residents, include:
- Serious felonies, such as murder, manslaughter, kidnapping, burglary and armed robbery
- Drug crimes
- Domestic violence offenses
- Sex crimes, including rape and prostitution
- Crimes involving the use of firearms
- Many types of lesser offenses
In general, crimes that result in a jail or prison sentence of one year or more may make an individual eligible for removal. It is important to have experienced legal advice and seasoned representation from an attorney who knows how to fight criminal charges and seek the most favorable outcome possible. These outcomes could include reduced charges that do not trigger removal proceedings, alternative sentences that do not require incarceration for a year or more, or dismissal of the charges altogether.
Undocumented residents and people with other immigration problems face other problems. However, there are still options. Our Bucks County immigration lawyer will discuss the choices available and can represent people who have no legal documentation, helping them fight the charges and the subsequent removal proceedings.
