Protecting Immigrants From Deportation
What should you do if you are being threatened with criminal deportation?
In the U.S., a non-citizen could be subject to deportation back to their
home country if they have been convicted of certain crimes, including
smuggling aliens into the country, perjury, an aggravated felony, or a
high speed flight from an immigration checkpoint. Typically, a person
convicted of a crime like this could be facing time in prison and heavy
penalties. For a non-citizen, the consequences are much more life-altering;
he or she could lose the life he or she has made in the U.S. permanently.
