Illegal Re-Entry After Deportation

Illegal Re-Entry After Deportation

Are U.S. Immigrants Treated Fairly? We Don't Think So.

This country was built by immigrants, but today's political and legal systems work against them, setting up roadblocks and barriers to entry. Many would-be immigrants get deported, some of them torn away from family members who live in the U.S. The stakes get even higher after you've been deported but come back into the country, which is called illegal re-entry.

Illegal re-entry is a crime, and a conviction could mean serious prison time. If you've been arrested, it makes sense to call a Phoenix criminal defense attorney at Suzuki Law Offices, L.L.C. We'll put two attorneys on your federal crime case, not just one. You get an experienced team to defend you. That's the definition of quality service. That's how you get results.

Punishment for Illegal Re-Entry

The law doesn't make it easy on immigrants. You may have come here to be with family or make money to send back home. But the federal government believes that re-entry after deportation is a criminal act. What might happen to you depends on whether or not you have a prior record or are accused of committing a crime (whether or not you're here legally).

You could receive years in prison, depending on the situation:

  • Up to 2 years if you have no felony convictions on your record
  • Up to 10 years if you have any prior felonies on your record
  • Up to 20 years if you have an aggravated felony on your record

We also defend people charged with the federal offense of smuggling or harboring an illegal immigrant. Federal authorities often charge family members and community activists for conspiracy in aiding and abetting illegal re-entry.

Possible Defenses to Your Federal Charges

When the federal government wants you gone or locked up, who will defend you? What is your defense? Our firm knows where criminal law and immigration law intersect. Here are the questions you should be asking:

  • Was it a mistake that you were deported in the first place?
  • Do you have a prior conviction that should not have been charged as a felony?
  • Are you seeking political asylum as a way to escape persecution back home?
  • Did you not understand the consequences of a prior guilty plea?
