Keeping America safe is one of the duties of the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement. With that in mind, the agency seeks to remove people who are in the country illegally and who are considered a threat to the citizens. It is important for those who are in the country on a visa, under any immigration programs or illegally to fully understand how that can negatively affect them if they get into any sort of legal trouble.
For citizens of the country, accepting a plea bargain in exchange for a guilty plea is something that can often reduce the sentence the person receives for the crime. That isn't the case for immigrants, whether they are here legally or illegally. For immigrants, even misdemeanor crime convictions and plea deals can lead to deportation. For that reason, you must ensure that you understand how a plea bargain, guilty plea or conviction can affect your immigration status before you enter any plea in your case. We can help you to understand all these aspects of your case, as well as helping you to determine the best way to handle a case.
Whether you are facing a Texas felony or misdemeanor criminal charge, an ICE hold or deportation, we can help you learn your options to fight against them. You might be able to get your green card back or have the removal proceedings cancelled. The first step to getting back to the life in America you love is to learn your rights and your options for dealing with the case you have placed against you.
