When an immigrant commits a serious crime, it can increase their chances of getting deported to their country of origin. Even immigrants with green cards can get deported if there is evidence that they committed a serious crime or a series of crimes. Our Dallas deportation attorneys explain what crimes can lead to deportation.
Types of Crimes that Can Result in Deportation
According to the Department of State, amoral turpitude and aggravated felonies are the most common types of crimes that can result in deportation. If an immigrant has a long list of crimes, it can result in immediate deportation without the chance of an immigration hearing. Immigrants deported due to criminal charges may also become “inadmissible,” meaning that they won’t be allowed to return to the United States under any circumstances. For such reasons, it’s vital for immigrants and green card holders to have an experienced immigration attorney on their side.
Below are the most common types of crimes that can lead to deportation:
- Domestic Violence
- Aggravated DUI/DWI
- Voluntary manslaughter
- Child pornography
- Money Laundering
- Drug or firearm trafficking
- Sexual abuse of a minor
- Tax evasion involving $10,000 or more
