The immigration system is keeping a closer eye on criminal aliens and addressing their immigration status with more expediency. There have been instances where an immigrant is out of jail on bond for theft, DUI, or an assault crime, but is taken into custody by immigration officials at the probation office. Some have been taken into custody after being stopped for a traffic violation.
We are aware of the immigration consequences following a criminal charge or conviction. Even a lawful permanent resident who has been here since childhood can be removed. Even seemingly minor offenses can have serious immigration consequences.
If you have been charged with a crime, you may face jail time or even deportation. You are entitled to aggressive representation from a knowledgeable immigration attorney. For more information, or to schedule an appointment,
