Philadelphia DUI Defense Lawyer for Non-Citizens
Being convicted of DUI in the United States can carry serious consequences. These consequences become even more severe for non-citizens. When a non-citizen is arrested for DUI, a permanent record is made of the arrest. As a result, this arrest can appear every time the non-citizen attempts to enter the country, adjust his/her status, or otherwise obtain an immigration benefit.
Whether a non-citizen convicted of a crime faces deportation proceedings depends on the nature of the offense for which the individual was convicted. The government looks at whether the offense can be characterized as an aggravated felony, or a crime involving moral turpitude (CIMT). Analyzing this type of situation can be critical because these convictions can greatly change a non-citizen’s immigration status. It is important to remember that just because the Government is claiming an individual is removable, many times there strong defenses that must be argued that can potentially keep a non-citizen in the United States.
