When people who are in the U.S. illegally are arrested, immigration proceedings against them will begin while they are in jail. They will be unable to get bond to get out of jail. They may then face a removal hearing and be deported, depending on the crime they are charged with. The results of their criminal cases can also affect their ability to legally immigrate to the U.S.

Legal permanent residents who are charged with crimes may or may not have their immigration status affected by a conviction. A conviction for some crimes will have no effect on their status, while other crimes may result in deportation. In general, the more serious the crime, the greater chance it will affect your immigration status. The immigration judge may have discretion to decide whether the crime will affect your status.

You need to know which crimes will affect you before you make a deal with the prosecution. Our lawyers understand these laws and will explain your options to you. We work hard to protect your rights and immigration status.
