CONVICTIONS THAT CAN AFFECT IMMIGRATION STATUS
There are two main types of criminal convictions that commonly result in negative immigration consequences: aggravated felonies and crimes of moral turpitude. Aggravated felonies are some of the most serious offenses—crimes that involve violence, firearms, dangerous weapons, sex crimes, and others. Crimes of moral turpitude may be misdemeanor or felony, and usually consists of acts or behaviors that demonstrate moral deficiency—theft crimes, drug crimes, fraud, or certain violent offenses.
