Immigration Law

Immigration law refers to national government policies which control the phenomenon of immigration to their country.

Immigration law, regarding foreign citizens, is related to nationality law, which governs the legal status of people, in matters such as citizenship. Immigration laws vary from country to country, as well as according to the political climate of the times, as sentiments may sway from the widely inclusive to the deeply exclusive of new immigrants

Illegal immigration is extremely dangerous and illegals have been known to be trafficked for exploitation. People have been kidnapped or tricked into slavery to work as laborers. Those trafficked in this way have a much more difficult time since their illegal status makes it impossible to ask for legal help or services.

Florida has by some estimates, a million illegal immigrants. Illegal immigration into the country has had a tendency to, with it, spawn a surge of crime. If an immigrant commits a crime, they are generally put in jail, then deported to their home country upon release.

Immigrant Defense

The most important thing in all immigration criminal cases is to act early. You can remain in the US with one criminal charge. If you have more than one, the possibility of deportation is high.

A criminal defense lawyer uses pretrial intervention to prevent a case from going through trial. By negotiating with prosecutors for a reduced sentence, a criminal defense lawyer will work out deals to have their clients enter programs and complete community service instead of serving time in jail.

Being proactive in an immigration criminal case often makes the difference between deportation and remaining in the United States. Contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer.
