Being an immigrant can have its pros and cons. Some people may have come to Florida and other parts of the United States from other countries for school, work or to build new lives entirely. Unfortunately, if an immigrant is arrested and convicted of a crime, it could have serious effects on immigration status.
As an immigrant, the idea of facing a criminal charge can hold much more serious implications than for other people. In some cases, individuals charged with a serious crime in Florida or other parts of the United States could find themselves at risk for deportation. Of course, just like anyone else in the country, these parties have the right to a criminal defense.
