Criminal conduct can affect someone's
immigration status or ability to obtain an
immigration benefit. Even lawful permanent
residents, who have lived in the U.S. for many
years, may be placed in removal proceedings,
detained, or denied naturalization because of their
criminal activity. In some instances, a conviction
is not required to trigger removal proceedings or
inadmissibility. If you have ever been arrested,
charged, or convicted of a crime you should
consult an immigration attorney to determine how
it will affect your immigration status.
