Immigration Consequences of Arrests & Criminal Convictions

Dedicated Immigration Attorney in Connecticut

Have you been arrested by police? Are you worried about how your arrest and possible conviction might impact your immigration status? Under U.S. immigration law, certain criminal offenses can render an immigrant inadmissible or deportable. However, under the Trump administration, criminal offenses that qualify immigrants for deportation have increased and now include many minor offenses.

A person can be deported, sometimes unexpectedly, due to a conviction of a crime that goes on their record. Unfortunately, some immigrants do not realize that taking a plea to some drug and assault crimes, even if they do not serve any jail time, can still get them deported. If you are working in the U.S without documentation and you are charged with a crime, your status can be changed to inadmissible and you will face deportation.

Consequences of criminal activity if you are an immigrant include:

  • Delays with your visa
  • Denial of your visa
  • Removal or deportation
  • Denial of immigration benefits
