Accused Immigrants & Potential Societal Biases
Immigrants new to the country can often find themselves in a one-sided situation after being arrested. Many people in our society are distrusting of immigrants simply because they are not official residents or citizens of the United States. If their case goes to court, they may be viewed in a biased, negative light by the prosecution, judge, and jury. For this reason and many more, immigrants must be proactive and retain powerful, tenacious legal defense as soon as possible.
Immigrant Crimes & Punishments
Some criminal violations often cited in immigration arrests include:
- Theft crimes
- Drug charges
- Assault and battery
The penalties upon conviction for a non-immigrant will usually include months or more in jail, hundreds or thousands of dollars in fines and fees, and a lengthy probation period. Immigrants can expect similar sentencing with one extreme caveat: depending on the severity of their alleged crime, they could be deported or detained in a United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility where their future as a potential American resident will be weighed and reviewed. Shielding yourself from imminent deportation requires a highly-experienced defense lawyer who can not only defend you in court but can also convince ICE that your removal from the country is unwarranted.
