Houston Criminal Defense & Immigration Lawyer
Facing Criminal Charges as an Immigrant?
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) places high priority on "targeting illegal aliens with criminal records who pose a threat to public safety," according to the ICE Criminal Alien Program (CAP) website. At-large criminal aliens and aliens who are incarcerated in prisons and jails are prime targets for removal from the U.S.
You could be deported if you are in the U.S. on a visa or have lawful permanent resident status (LPR), temporary protected status (TPS), or don't have any status or legal papers, and you have been convicted of a certain criminal charge.
What Charges Could Result in Deportation?
- Driving without a license
- Drug offenses
- Theft, burglary, or robbery
- Assault or battery
- False identification or falsifying immigration documents
- Voting illegally
- Helping others enter the U.S. illegally
- Other misdemeanors and felonies
Many noncitizens and even criminal defense lawyers are not aware that any noncitizen, regardless of immigration status, could be held in immigration jail without bail and deported as a result of a criminal guilty plea, including a plea for deferred adjudication.
Do NOT accept a plea bargain deal. Do NOT plead guilty to a criminal offense before you fully understand the immigration consequences of your criminal charge. Call (832) 981-2170 to setup a consultation with Attorney Yegani.
