What is a Deportable Criminal Offense?

Several crimes can lead to serious immigration consequences for noncitizens. The immigration lawyers at Flowers Davis are experienced in identifying criminal charges that could have immigration consequences and pursuing relief for our clients. If you are not a citizen of the United States and you are charged with a crime (misdemeanor or felony), the Government may begin removal proceedings against you. Contacting an experienced immigration attorney as quickly as possible gives you the best chance to remain in the United States.

The most serious criminal offenses, known as aggravated felonies, carry the most severe immigration consequences. Examples of common aggravated felonies include convictions for the following crimes (including attempts):

  • Murder
  • Rape
  • Sexual Abuse of a Minor
  • Child Pornography
  • Burglary / Receiving Stolen Property
  • Certain Fraud/Theft Crimes
  • Drug Trafficking
  • Illegal Firearm Trafficking
  • Crimes of Violence
  • Money Laundering
  • Forgery
  • Kidnapping
  • Tax Evasion
  • Alien Smuggling
  • Perjury
  • Bribery
  • Obstruction of Justice
  • Illegal Entry/Reentry by Alien Previously Deported

You should know that certain noncitizens if convicted of an aggravated felony, may be deported without a formal hearing before an immigration judge. These individuals are generally not eligible for any kind of relief. We work hard to make sure federal and state convictions will not result in aggravated felonies under federal immigration law.

Other Common Grounds for Removal Proceedings

The Government may also seek to remove individuals present in the United States for a variety of other reasons, including the following common grounds:

  • Illegally Entering the United States
  • Unlawful Presence in the United States
  • Drug Crimes
  • Aggravated DUI’s
  • Fraud or Misrepresentation to Obtain Immigration Benefits
  • Committing a Crime Involving Moral Turpitude
  • Abandoning Permanent Resident Status

What to do if I am detained?

Removal cases usually begin after Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detains a noncitizen of the United States. Some individuals are eligible to be released from custody on bond while waiting for their court date. An experienced immigration attorney can help you request an immigration bond and avoid lengthy and unnecessary detention. It is critical to contact an experienced immigration attorney as quickly as possible if ICE detains you.

Even if you are undocumented and entered the country illegally, you may qualify for deportation relief depending on the facts of your case. It is important to discuss your case with an experienced immigration lawyer before giving any statements to ICE or signing any paperwork.
