Mary Kramer on Immigration Consequences of Criminal Activity: A Guide to Representing Foreign-Born Defendants

AILA author Mary E. Kramer discusses her new book, Immigration Consequences of Criminal Activity: A Guide to Representing Foreign-Born Defendants, and why this is a critical resource to add to the references you use on a daily basis.

The 8th edition has been updated with coverage of the latest law and policy from the courts and agencies impacting all areas of criminal immigration law. It explores crimes of moral turpitude, aggravated felonies, controlled-substance offenses, firearms offenses, and all other grounds for deporting or denying admission, benefits, waivers, or other relief to non-American citizens. The book is also a practical resource. For criminal defense attorneys, it focuses on how to fashion a plea with immigration consequences in mind, and for immigration attorneys there is instruction on how to prepare applications for clients with criminal records. The book also includes discussion of how non-American citizens who have been victimized by criminal activity in the United States can be granted immigration benefits.

Regardless of whether your practice is focused on removal defense, family-based immigration, asylum, business, or any other area of immigration law, Immigration Consequences of Criminal Activity is your go-to resource when your client has been charged with a crime.
