Deportation from the US?

This is more of an inquiry than a question, but does anyone out there know for what crimes committed by a legal resident of the US (non-citizen) brings in the rule of deportation? This is part of a discussion I am involved in and I ain't to sure of the answer, except for the main one of crimes against children, murder and so on. Anyone out there no what it is or where I can find the list if there is such a thing? Also part of it is also, if one gets incarcerated in a County, State or Federal prison for either a misdemeanor or felony what is the maximum stay is there is one before Deportation is considered? Thanks for any help on this one!

    Nothing against your question. It's great, but I could lecture for an hour and not fully answer it.

    Generally speaking, an alien can be deported if he is convicted of a crime involving moral turpitude (do a search), a controlled substance violation, or an aggravated felony (do a search).

    Section 237(a)(2) deals with deportability on criminal grounds. Do a search on Immigration & Nationality Act and look at section 237(a).

    Examples of listed aggravated felonies include:

    * a crime of violence for which the term of imprisonment is at least 1 year;

    * a theft offense (including receipt of stolen property) or burglary offense for which the term of imprisonment is at least one year;

    * illicit trafficking in drugs, firearms, destructive devices, or explosive materials;

    * an offense that involves fraud or deceit in which the loss to the victim or victims exceeds $10,000;

    * offenses related to alien smuggling (though some exceptions apply); and

    * murder, rape, or sexual abuse of a minor.

    Sometimes an aggravated felony involves drugs, sometimes it involves moral turpitude, and sometimes it involves neither, but can still be a ground of removal.

    it is a case via case foundation. many cases the guy to be deported enters into an contract to bypass away voluntarily. In those cases the guy is often given a quantity of time to land up his affairs, each so often as much as six months. different cases, whilst an exact order of removing is issued via a choose the guy is right here, in detention, merely long adequate for ICE to make preparations and deliver him on his way.

    Sorry, but this seems like an authoritative question. you should ask the company that gave your green-card. I believe the maximum stay is varied. Talk to someone in that department if you want professional answers. Sorry if I don't help much.
