CRIMMIGRATION

The intersection of criminal and immigration law is a particularly important and complex area of the law.  Various crimes can make an immigrant inadmissible or removable (i.e. deportable).  To make that determination, a legal analysis must be conducted, as immigration law reclassifies certain state crimes and criminalizes certain acts that may not be illegal under state law.  For example, although marijuana is now legal is several states in the U.S. , it’s consumption is still illegal for immigration purposes and can make an immigrant deportable,  even if he or she is already a legal permanent resident.  For immigrants who have a criminal history, it is especially important to work with an attorney that understands this area of the law and is able to conduct a thorough analysis of the immigrant’s case, taking into consideration both the state and federal laws that apply.
