Deportation for Criminal Convictions
Many non-citizens who are charged with a criminal offense enter a guilty plea without knowing the impact that their plea will have on their immigration status. It is not uncommon for deportation or removal proceedings to be initiated while non-citizens are still being held by the criminal correctional system. Additionally, an ICE hold may be placed against these non-citizens, which requires that they remain in custody even if they have posted bail or completed their sentences.
