DUI May Lead to Deportation Under New Rules

People who live in the US illegally now have a new fear regarding deportation according to a story from NBC Los Angeles.

Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly announced that ‘a single DUI’ might be enough to send an undocumented immigrant to the deportation process. The administration also plans on hiring many more immigration enforcement officers to speed up deportations. President Trump has made comparisons to his new immigration policy to a military operation, but Kelly is downplaying the President’s rhetoric. Regardless, the new policy has many people alarmed.

This means that if you are undocumented, it’s all the more important that you get a good DUI lawyer on your side if you’re arrested for DUI. Not only will you have to face penalties here, but you could get sent back to your home country. Deportation is a long and ugly process that splits families and will forever change your life.
