Criminal Conduct and Immigration Consequences
Traditionally, criminal defense and immigration law were considered as two distinct and different areas of law which operated separately from one another. However, recent law enforcement trends and judicial decisions have drastically shifted the legal landscape and have combined these two areas of the law for those people who are not U.S. citizens and are facing criminal charges.
With Donald Trump as President of the United States, law enforcement has been ordered to focus on non-citizens who live in this country. The Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) have been instructed to not only prioritize the deportation of serious criminal offenders, but these agencies have also been ordered to deport immigrants who commit low-level crimes. Arrests of immigrants with no criminal history has nearly tripled in the last year under the Trump Administration. And more frightening, even those immigrants with legal residency papers may find themselves deported out of the country.
