Immigration Consequences of Criminal Activity, 9th ed.
Immigration Consequences of Criminal Activity: A Guide to Representing Foreign-Born Defendants by Mary E. Kramer is your one-volume resource for understanding how the courts and immigration agencies will treat non-American citizens convicted or even suspected of a crime. It provides a thoughtful analysis of all the ways criminal activity will impact applications for visas, permanent residence, naturalization, asylum, and other immigration benefits, as well as defenses to attempts to remove a non-American citizen and the waivers and other relief available in removal proceedings.
Regardless of whether your practice is focused on criminal or business or any other area of immigration law practice, Immigration Consequences of Criminal Activity is your go-to resource when your client has been charged with a crime.
