Criminal convictions often trigger harsh immigration consequences such as deportation and/or removal from the United States, and sometimes indeterminate detention. Noncitizen defendants and criminal attorneys must be mindful of the law beyond the criminal code that applies to the noncitizen criminal defendant’s case. Indeed, particular crimes may subject a noncitizen to detention and/or removal from the United States.
To prevent such harsh immigration consequences, we advise criminal defendant and/or their attorneys:
- (1) how to negotiate a deal for a noncitizen that avoids mandatory detention,
- (2) negotiate a plea to a crime that does not implicate removability, and
- (3) work-out a plea or defense strategy that effectively sets the noncitizen up to be eligible for relief under the immigration laws.
In this regard, ISG provides advice to the noncitizen criminal defendant and/or their attorney hiring ISG as an immigration advisor.
