Tennessee Immigration Attorneys Provide Defense Representation

Being accused of a crime can possibly be troublesome for both U.S. citizens and immigrants. If declared guilty of a crime, United States citizens may face substantial penalties, but immigrants to the United States face the extra danger of deportation and removal. Even when you are in the United States as a legal resident with a green card or visa, if charged with a crime you may suffer aggressive prosecution and harsh sentencing. If you have been arrested, it is crucial that you work with a lawyer like Chris Colavecchio immediately.

Under the United States immigration laws a variety of crimes can lead to a removal from the States, including:

  • Aggravated felonies
  • DWI
  • Robbery
  • Murder
  • Drug possession
  • Assault

Offenders that are legal citizens may be sentenced to years in prison and steep fines, but foreign nationals face more severe consequences. Immigrants may be ordered to pay fines and spend time in an Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention center awaiting removal from the country; generally, they are barred from returning to the U.S. after a conviction. Being deported means that you may face losing everything you have worked so hard to gain in this country and be separated from your family and friends. It is vital you speak with an attorney if you have been charged.
