By Lilli Baculi, Esq.
The Declaration of Independence pro-claims that “all men are created equal,that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, thatamong these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Yet, “equality”and “freedom” hang on a thin thread for a non-citizen who commits or is con-victed of a crime. Non-citizen individu-als who commit a criminal offense or isconvicted of a crime will run the risk of  becoming inadmissible and/or remov-able (deportable) from the United States.“Inadmissible” v. “Deportable.” A person seeking entry to the UnitedStates at the border (e.g., at LAX) is a person who is seeking “admission” intothe United States. Traditionally, LawfulPermanent Residents (“LPR”) were notdeemed to make a new admission intothe US upon his or her return if the tripwas “innocent, casual, and brief” and if the trip was not meant to be “meaning-fully interruptive” of the LPR’s statusas a permanent resident. However,
Congress has now dened when an
LPR will be deemed as seeking a newadmission under the immigration laws.Under the immigration laws, an LPR will not be regarded as seeking a newadmission unless: (1) s/he abandonedor relinquished her LPR status . . . (3) s/he has engaged in illegal activity after having departed the US; or (5) s/he hascommitted a criminal offense under theImmigration and Nationality Act section212(a)(2).On the other hand, an LPR is remov-able or deportable under the immigra-tion laws if: (1) s/he has been convictedof a crime involving moral turpitude
within ve (5) years of his or her admis-
sion into the US; (2) s/he has been con-victed of a crime for which a sentence of one year or longer may be imposed; (3)s/he is convicted of two or more crimesof involving moral turpitude at any timeafter his or her admission into the US;or (4) s/he is convicted of an aggravatedfelony at any time after admission intothe US.It is the inherent nature of the offense
as dened by statute and interpreted by
the courts, and as limited and described by the record of conviction whichdetermines whether the offense is oneinvolving “moral turpitude.” The statuteunder which the conviction occurredcontrols this determination.It is important to note that in certaininstances, the mere “commission” of a crime involving moral turpitude willhave immigration consequences.Examples. Christian is an LPR who was admitted to the US in 1990. In2008, he was convicted for 2 DUI con-victions and petty theft. In 2010, he took a vacation outside of the US for a fewweeks. Upon his return, he was detainedfor being an “inadmissible alien.”Meanwhile, Christina (also an LPR)was convicted of 2 DUI convictions, battery, and possession of marijuana.She has been issued a Notice of Appear (“NTA”) alleging that she is “deport-able.”In either of these scenarios, bothChristian and Christina will run the risk of being removed (deported) from theUnited States because of their convic-tions, notwithstanding their LPR status,and their long-term residence in theUnited States.The Record of Conviction. TheRecord of Conviction (“ROC”) detailsan individual’s criminal history –his
arrest, what he plead to, and the nal
 judgment/sentence. It is important to protect the record of conviction from thevery beginning to minimize the impactof a criminal proceeding on a person’sLPR status. The relief(s) available toindividuals facing removal/deportation proceedings will depend on that indi-vidual’s record of conviction.To be clear, not every criminal convic-tion will result in deportation and notevery deportation proceeding will leadto an order of deportation. There arerelief(s) available under the immigrationlaws to individuals facing deportation.However, certain commission of crimesand/or convictions will render a non-citizen inadmissible and/or deportable,and will run the risk of being placed indeportation proceedings.It is important to be informed andknow your options. An experienced im-
migration rm or attorney will be able
to help you understand what immigra-
tion terms mean specic to the regula-
tions, what steps might be taken for your  particular case, and the options availableto you under the evolving immigrationlaws.
