Immigration and criminal law
If convicted of a crime, immigrants living in the U.S can face the risk of deportation and removal from the country. Being here legally with a green card or a visa still isn’t enough in some cases. Criminal offenses that can lead to removal from the U.S include:
• Aggravated Felonies
• Drug Cases
Not only can you face steep fines and detention in an immigration center, but also removal from the country. Deportation means you may lose everything that took you years to gain, as well as being separated from family and friends. It’s crucial that you speak to a lawyer if you have been charged.
