03/2010, I received my first DUI. Then in 05/2010, I received my second DUI. My sentence was 60 days in jail but in lieu of that I decided to join DUI Court which lasted about a year and a half. I just graduated from the program and want to visit my family in Japan. I have a green card for about 10 years, living in U.S for 15 years, go to CA State Univ Fullerton, work at Starbucks. Will I have problems at the border when entering the U.S? I did on my first DUI but they let me through. Now I have two! Help!
You should consult with an immigration attorney. That said, I've had numerous clients from all parts of the world who have not been deported or denied entry into the US because of DUI's. A DUI is not a crime of moral turpitude, like knowingly leaving the scene of an accident or knowingly driving without a valid license. So long as you do not have a warrant out for your arrest, you should be OK leaving and returning to the U.S.
I agree with my esteemed colleagues.
