We can review your case and determine all of your available legal options in order to get the most favorable outcome possible.

What is considered an immigration crime?

Immigration and Customs Enforcement is significantly aggressive with investigation and prosecution of people accused of immigration crimes in Texas, including Sierra Blanca and Van Horn, and other border states. Most cases fall into two categories: illegal re-entry and illegal smuggling.

Illegal entry occurs when an individual enters or attempts to enter the U.S. without government approval. Illegal smuggling is the transportation or attempted transportation of a person across an international border. Whether you are a legal citizen or not, you could be deported from the country if found guilty of an immigration crime.
