I was arrested for shoplifting. Can I be deported?

Back to Miami Criminal Defense Attorney Frequently Asked Questions

Video Transcription

In most circumstances, shoplifting can be seen as what’s called a crime of moral turpitude, which certainly will have an impact on your immigration. It also depends on whether there’s any other crimes in your background before, how long you’ve been in the United States, what was your purpose for being here, the kind of VISA that you were on. It’s important that your criminal defense attorney understand the particular nature of the immigration consequences it’s going to have on you. You must explain to your attorney exactly what your status is here in the United States so that we can best advise you what to do and how we can resolve your criminal case for you so that it has the least amount of consequences to you and to your family with respect to your immigration.
