Crimes and Deportation

Crimes and Deportation in the U.S

 For those who've lived in the U.S. sin documentos or had a greencard/permanent residency and have criminal record:
If you already have a greencard and are a permanent resident of the U.S. but you had problems with the law, you may be deported from the United States.  There is a long list of criminal offenses leading to deporation - the most common of those offenses are domestic violence / violence against spouse or child, sexual abuse of a minor, drug use and trafficking, major fraud, theft, robbery, bank fraud, credit card fraud, welfare fraud , medicare/medical fraud, insurance fraud,  gang-related crimes, and other crimes.

Usually, if you were accused of crime leading to deportation/removal, you will be placed under "immigration hold" (which means you can not be bailed out of jail).  This normally happens to undocumented immigrant, but permanent residents can be subject to immigration hold too. It is very important to hire a qualified criminal defense attorney who is familiar with immigration consequences of pleading guilty to certain charges to avoid pleading guilty to a deportable offense in exchange for empty promises of short jail terms by the prosecutors. Unfortunately, very few criminal defense attorneys and even fewer public defenders are familiar with immigration law. Public defenders are not financially motivated to vigorously defend defendant's interests and are unwilling to go to trial - its much easier for them to just plead you out without regard to the deportation consequences for you.

Our office offers services of a qualified criminal defense attorney Alex Andrushenko who jointly with the immigration lawyer Dmitry Paniotto will provide you with legal assistance in respectively criminal and immigration case keeping in mind your interest in avoiding deportation. Our of counsel criminal defense Attorney Alex Andrushenko will consult with our immigration attorney Dmitry Paniotto on the deportation consequences of the criminal offense before you will decide to plead guilty or go to trial.

It is extremely important to look at an Immigration Attorney.

How to Get a Work Permit in California?

ASYLUM TO GET A WORK PERMIT

Don't file asylum just to get an employment authorization - hundreds of thousands of central Americans and others filed hundreds of thousands fake asylum applications in the 1980s and 1990s and even a few years back because they were told by asylum preparers that they would get a work permit. Happy to get an opportunity to work legally rather than for cash, these asylum applicants signed hundreds of thousands of fraudulent asylum applications without even reading or/and understanding what asylum meant. Many of these asylum applicants did get their work permits and for many years were enjoying the temporary period of relative peace and well-being until finally they started getting their asylum interview notices. In the past few years tens of thousands of these asylum applicants have been called for their asylum interviews and unless they qualified for NACARA, they were referred to immigration court for removal proce…

Regardless of your immigration status do not try to fight alone against deportation. The Government of the United States can use more than 50 reasons to take out or ask to be deported outside the United States.
