Recent changes to immigration law and an increase in immigration enforcement have resulted in significant consequences for noncitizens with criminal histories. Convictions for minor criminal offenses can lead to deportation and loss of status, and court dispositions that appear favorable may cause serious and irreversible immigration consequences. In this presentation, you can learn how to best help noncitizen clients facing potential immigration consequences.

Three experienced immigration attorneys will discuss this intersection of criminal and immigration law. Topics to be covered include:

• How to assess a client’s immigration status and history
• The definition of a conviction in Massachusetts
• ICE presence in courthouses
• Immigration consequences of criminal activity
• Defenses to deportation and paths to lawful status
• Post-conviction relief
• How recent rulings could impact noncitizens

This program will give advocates the tools and knowledge to best represent their noncitizen clients.
