There are many reasons that can lead to deportation, and one of them is committing a crime. Even immigrants with green cards can get deported if there is evidence that they committed a crime. However, not all crimes will lead to deportation. The Miami immigration attorneys at Revilla Law Firm, P.A. have put together the crimes that can cause deportation.

A Crime of Moral Turpitude

According to the Department of State, amoral turpitude crime includes fraud, larceny, and the intent to harm people. Moral turpitude is a general term for crimes that are severe or involve dishonesty. Below is a list of some of the crimes that are considered moral turpitude:

  • Theft
  • Robbery
  • Physical abuse
  • Domestic violence
  • Aggravated DUI/DWI
  • Voluntary manslaughter
  • Kidnaping

Aggravated Felony

Aggravated felonies are another category of crimes that can cause deportation. We have put together a list of some examples of aggravated felonies:

  • Murder
  • Rape
  • Violent crime
  • Child pornography
  • Money laundering
  • Voluntary manslaughter
  • Drug or firearm trafficking
  • Sexual abuse of a minor
  • Fraud or tax evasion involving $10,000 or more

Other Crimes

If an immigrant has a long list of crimes and gets deported and returns to the United States, it can lead to serious consequences. Even if a person is let back into the country, any new crime can result in another deportation. Immigrants deported due to criminal charges may become “inadmissible.” This means that they won’t be allowed back in the United States under any circumstances.
