In Padilla v. Kentucky, the Supreme Court held that criminal defense attorneys must advise their clients of immigration consequences prior to resolving their cases. The Obama administration recently announced that it plans to focus its immigration enforcement efforts on “criminal aliens.”  With record numbers of noncitizens being deported every year for criminal convictions, many of whom have lived in the U.S. legally for many years and have been convicted of relatively minor crimes, it is imperative that attorneys understand the interplay between immigration and criminal law.

After this seminar, attendees will have a basic understanding of the immigration consequences of criminal conduct, waivers and other forms of relief from deportation based on criminal conduct, immigration court proceedings, immigration enforcement programs and post-conviction motions.

Specific Topics:

  • Types of immigration status
  • Categories of inadmissible and deportable offenses
  • Waivers/relief from removal
  • Overview of immigration court proceedings
  • Immigration enforcement programs
  • Post-conviction motions

Practice Areas: Criminal Enforcement & Deportation, Criminal Law & Procedure, Immigration & Naturalization Law
