What Will Happen to My Immigration Status?
If you have been arrested or may be arrested for any kind of
criminal offense, it’s imperative that you obtain representation from an attorney.
Your immigration status could be in jeopardy. Individuals going through
the immigration process or with no legal status who have criminal records
are a top priority of United States Immigration & Customs Enforcement
(ICE). Because they are considered as putting others in jeopardy, these
individuals are at much higher risk for
If you were charged with a crime such as driving under the influence of
drugs or alcohol, falsifying documents related to your immigration, voting
illegally, assault and battery, drug crimes, theft crimes, driving without
a license, or anything else, your immigration process could be labeled
with “ICE hold status,” and officials in your area may be
notified. If you request a plea for deferred adjudication or if you submit
a guilty plea, you may be deported. If you are put in immigration jail,
you could also be held without bail. You need to know the ramifications
of your case, and what to do—and what NOT to do—if you are arrested.
What to Do If You Are Arrested
First of all, you need to speak with a Philadelphia immigration lawyer
immediately. Understand that your status and future are at risk. This,
if any, is a time to seek legal assistance and guidance. Also, do NOT
accept a plea bargain deal or plead guilty to the charges facing you until
you have consulted with your immigration attorney and learned all of the
repercussions of these actions.
