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 system works against immigrants, setting up roadblocks and barriers to entry. Many would-be immigrants get deported, some of them torn away from their family members who live here in the U.S.
But the stakes get even higher after you've been deported but come back into the country, which is called illegal re-entry, and conviction could mean serious prison time.
Illegal re-entry is a crime. It makes sense to call a Phoenix illegal re-entry attorney. And at Suzuki Law Offices, we'll put two attorneys on your case, not just one. You get an experienced legal team to defend you. That's the definition of quality service. That's how you get results. That's the Suzuki difference.

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 get years in prison, depending on the situation:
- Up to 2 years if you have no felony convictions
- Up to 10 years if you have any prior felonies (or three or more misdemeanors) on your record
- Up to 20 years if you were convicted of an aggravated felony
We also defend people charged with the serious 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.
What Is Your Defense?
When the federal government wants you gone and/or locked up, who will defend you? What is your defense? We know where criminal law and immigration law intersect. Here are the questions you should ask:
- 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?
- Did you not understand the consequences of a prior guilty plea?
- Do you have the option of political asylum because you were trying to escape persecution in your home country?
