Can friend be deported for 2nd degree sexual assault of child 17 years ago
Asked about 18 hours ago - Madison, WI
occurred 17 years ago. Served 5 years probation. Immigration office just now contacting my friend. He owns his own business, married 3 children. Works, has green card up to date, pays taxes, etc. Where does he start. What can they do to him.
There could be waivers available for him for moral rehabilitation depending on his circumstances. Also, there are ways of reopening his old case and getting it either kicked out completely or changed into something that will not affect his immigration status. What I am saying is that there are multiple routes to keeping him in the US. There aren't enough details about his circumstances to give a very precise answer.
