The consequences of juvenile crimes on immigration status

Among the many limits imposed on immigrants to the United States are rules about criminal convictions. Crimes of moral turpitude -- which include just about anything illegal -- not only make an immigrant ineligible for a green card or citizenship, but they can result in deportation.

Immigration raids only account for some immigrant arrests

In recent months, every other day seems to feature headlines about aggressive tactics and legal questions surrounding the current role of the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency. The actions of ICE are front and center in the immigration debate going on in all parts of the country right now.

Criminal defense: What to expect with an attorney's help

A good criminal defense attorney has many strategies that can help you defend yourself effectively. Generally speaking, there are a few ways to defend yourself, but they all fall into the same categories. You either are claiming to be innocent or not. If not, you're looking to explain yourself and actions in a way that will lead to little or no punishment.

Defend yourself against criminal charges while you still can

No matter who you are, facing criminal charges in America can seriously impact your livelihood and the safety of your family. For immigrants living in America, especially those here without proper documentation, facing criminal charges could greatly alter their lives and can result in lengthy detention and deportation.

What offenses can result in deportation?

If a person lives in the United States as an undocumented immigrant, he or she may be subject to deportation even without committing any other specific crime. Under the current laws, it is already considered illegal to live in the United States as an immigrant if one does not enter legally, in most cases. Therefore, almost any violation may result in deportation.

Should an immigrant bother with building a criminal defense?

If you only ever listen to the news and sensational headlines, it may seem as though immigrants have no legal options and may get rounded up at any time for no reason at all. While there are certainly accounts of this bad behavior on the part of law enforcement, any immigrant who receives criminal charges of any kind should certainly build a strong legal defense as quickly as possible.
