Attorney for Immigration Law Violations in Los Angeles
Los Angeles Federal Criminal Defense Attorney
The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is charged with regulating all immigration procedures in the United States. Immigration procedures must be closely followed. If they are not, a non-citizen or non-legal resident can be deported. It is against U.S. federal law to reside in the United States for longer than the allowed amount of time without citizenship or legal resident status.
Many people are charged with immigration law violations because they were first arrested for another crime, such as a traffic offense, drug possession or assault. If you are facing accusations of an immigration law violation, your future in the United States as well as your criminal record are at stake.

U.S.-Mexico Border Arrests
A large amount of immigration law violation charges originate at border arrests. Due to Los Angeles' close proximity to the U.S.-Mexico border, these types of arrests are common. Immigration offenses are one of the most frequent reasons for arrest at the border. The United States Border Patrol (USBP) has checkpoints situated at various locations across the border. Anyone crossing the border is subject to a stop and, if warranted, a search by border agents.
Statistically, there are about 500,000 illegal entries into the United States every year. This statistic has placed pressure on border agents to make more immigration arrests. According to statistics from Customs and Border Protection (CBP), border agents receive at least 60 fraudulent identification documents every day. For this reason, it is extremely important for any citizen or legal resident to have proper identification on them at all times.
