What Drug Crimes Can Result in Deportation?
The Stakes Are High for Immigrants Accused of Drug Crimes
Immigrants who are not yet naturalized citizens are subject to federal immigration laws when charged with a crime, not merely state and local laws. Federal laws dictate that a non-citizen immigrant residing in the United States (even those who have been issued a green card) may be deported if convicted of virtually any crime, especially if the crime in question involves drugs. The only drug crime for which you may not be deported is a single, first-time marijuana possession offense, if you are found in possession of 30 grams or less of marijuana, intended for your personal use.
Legal immigrants accused of drug crimes of any kind should seek legal representation as soon as possible in order to avoid experiencing the full force of the law. Having a tough criminal defense lawyer on your side can mean the difference between being sent back to your country of origin, never to return, and being allowed to continue living and working in the United States.
