AILA Podcast on the Immigration Consequences of Criminal Convictions
Let's say you represent an alien on a criminal charge. Wouldn't you like to know what effect the disposition of that case will have on your client's immigration status? Thanks to the folks at the American Immigration Lawyers Association, you can download a podcast entitled "A Discussion for the Criminal Attorney on the Importance of Understanding the Immigration Law Consequences of Criminal Activity." Among other things, the discussion covers "how that great plea agreement can get your client deported," and how you may be surprised at just what constitutes a deportable crime of violence or of moral turpitude.
