i have been here 15 years continuously but i got deported in 1997, expedited removal against me 10 years permanent bar, ohhh and i have a Duii in 1997, do i have any hope with this new executive order of President Obama? I appreciate the attention.
You will not resolve your problems on this blog. You should actually talk to an immigration lawyer. Whether people with expedited removal ordered would be eligible for proposed DAPA depends on the final regulations, which we should have in 180 days as promised by the Administration.
The information contained in this answer is provided for informational purposes only, and should not be construed as legal advice on any subject matter,not should it be viewed as establishing an attorney client relationship of any kind.
In consideration of your expedited removal and your DUI, I suggest that you wait for the publication of the federal regulations to determine if you will be able to apply for DAPA. In the meantime, collect evidence of your presence in the U.S. since before 01-01-10. Above all , report and pay all your federal income taxes.
You need to wait until the release of the USCIS Memos in that regard, as well as the Regulations, come spring time, to find out if you will qualify at all under the new "Executive Action" directives.
Kindly be advised that the answer above is only general in nature cannot be construed as legal advice, given that not enough facts are known. It is your responsibility to retain a lawyer to analyze the facts specific to your particular situation in order to give you specific advice. Specific answers will require cognizance of all pertinent facts about your case. Any answers offered on Avvo are of a general nature only, and are not meant to create an attorney-client relationship.
I would say you need to try to hire a criminal lawyer to try to reopen you dui case and try to replea it to negligent or reckless driving. Otherwise, there may be an exception for people with dui with exceptional circumstances. You will need an immigration lawyer to make a case of exceptional circumstances. You can look for a criminal lawyer yourself or you can ask an immigration lawyer for a referral to a criminal lawyer who understands immigration consequences of criminal convictions.
