Legal Permanent Resident (Green Card)
There is nothing permanent about Legal Permanent Residents when it comes to certain criminal convictions. Under our U.S. immigration laws a Legal Permanent Resident can be put into deportation proceedings if they have been convicted of certain crimes. For example, a Permanent Resident can be deported for certain drug convictions. Moreover, a Legal Permanent Resident can be stopped at customs or at the border after traveling outside of the U.S as if he/she were an arriving alien and put into deportation proceedings if he/she has certain past criminal convictions or certain unresolved issues on his/her criminal record. If you are a Legal Permanent Resident facing deportation, please call Furness Law today.
Illegal Immigrant (No Papers)
If you are detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement otherwise known as “ICE,” you may be placed into Immigration proceedings before the immigration court. However, if you commit certain crimes during your illegal presence here in the United States you may be placed directly into Administrative Removal proceedings which means, ICE will enter a Final Order of Removal and deport you immediately without an opportunity to see an immigration judge. If you are an Illegal Immigrant summoned to appear in Immigration Court or facing Administrative Removal, please call Furness Law today.
