Immigration After Conviction
« on: August 05, 2014, 09:46:33 PM »
I wanted to give information to those that may need it in case your L/O faces immigration after they have served their sentence.  From what I have been told if your L/O is not a U.S. Citizen and convicted of an aggravated felony they may have to face the process to be deported back to their home country. Once they have been released from prison ICE will come to pick them up and begin the deportation process while your L/O sits in a detention facility (which is basically another prison or jail) until they are removed from the U.S. I don't know if any of this information will help anyone but I wanted to post it because it has helped me to understand what could possibly happen to my L/O once he is released from prison.

I have gathered a few links that can give information on this topic.  If there is anyone here who has any knowledge please share what you know.

This happened to a family friend, he was told by his lawyer that if he took the plea and served his time he wouldn't be deported. He got out, was living his life expecting things to go well and then out of the blue ICE came and picked him up, he sat at a holding center for just under a month and then was deported.
The thought of being with you tomorrow, gives me the strength to go on today.

Wow!!That is a terrible Amanda.Marks!!!! Well at this point my husband has been told there is a great chance he will be deported.  I wonder if that wouldn't be such a bad thing. Maybe we could have an actual shot at living a normal  life once he is released.

Thanks for sharing!!!
