What Crimes are Eligible for Deportation in Virginia?
In the United States, deportation (also called "removal") is the process of requiring an immigrant to leave the country. The grounds for deportation can vary, but generally speaking, an immigrant may be deported if they have been convicted of certain crimes. In Virginia, there are a number of crimes that can make an immigrant eligible for deportation. These include:
- Crimes of moral turpitude: This category includes crimes that are considered to be morally wrong, such as theft, fraud, and many types of violent crimes.
- Aggravated felonies: This category includes more serious crimes, such as murder, rape, and drug trafficking.
- Controlled substance offenses: An immigrant may be deported if they have been convicted of a drug-related crime, such as possession or distribution of controlled substances.
- Firearms offenses: An immigrant may be deported if they have been convicted of a crime involving firearms, such as unlawful possession or use of a firearm.
- Domestic violence: An immigrant may be deported if they have been convicted of a crime involving domestic violence, such as assault or battery against a spouse or family member.
It's important to note that these are just some examples of crimes that can make an immigrant eligible for deportation. The specific grounds for deportation can vary depending on the individual circumstances of each case.
Can Immigration Look at Your Expunged Record?
In Virginia, the expungement process is governed by state law, and expunged records may still be accessible to certain government agencies, including immigration officials, depending on the circumstances of the case.
Under Virginia law, expungement means that the court orders the destruction or removal of certain criminal records, making them inaccessible to the public. However, there are some exceptions to this rule. For example, law enforcement and certain government agencies may still have access to expunged records for specific purposes, such as investigations or prosecutions.
In addition, expunged records may still be visible on certain background checks, particularly those conducted by private companies. While expungement can help clear a criminal record, it is not guaranteed that the record will be completely erased and inaccessible to all parties.
Therefore, if you are applying for immigration to the United States and have an expunged criminal record in Virginia, it is advisable to consult with our experienced Richmond immigration attorneys to determine the potential impact of your record on your immigration case.
