Not Guilty! So Why Is This Undocumented Immigrant Still Being Deported?

personal-files-1534344-1.jpgIt was the most controversial case of 2015. A 54-year-old undocumented immigrant shot and killed a 32-year-old woman while she was posing for pictures with her father. Politically, the case was used as an argument as to why immigration laws needed to be tightened, and border security increased. However, a not guilty verdict has turned this situation on its ear, and it has come to represent why proper immigration counsel is the only option for proper migration to the U.S.

Undocumented Immigrant Still Being Deported After Not Guilty Verdict

When arrested by police, the 54-year-old man didn't deny that he had shot the woman in question, but he did claim that it was an accident. He told police that he found a .40-calibur Sig Sauer and picked it up when the weapon accidentally discharged. After being presented with the facts of the case, a jury agreed, and the man was found not guilty of the charge of murder.

This verdict has only increased the controversy around the case, but it wasn't the only charge the jury ruled on. Before his arrest, this undocumented immigrant had just finished a federal prison sentence for entering the country illegally. Because of this, the 54-year-old was found guilty of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

This verdict has allowed ICE to pursue deportation against the man. He has been deported five times already, and soon, immigrations services may send him away again. It is doubtful that he will ever be legally allowed in the country again.

Starting the legal process of immigration in this country can sometimes seem daunting, but having an experienced immigration attorney on your side can help. Entering the country through other channels will always put you in danger of deportation, which could tear your family apart. Consulting an attorney will provide you with options to keep you from being deported, and will allow you to become a productive citizen of the United States of America.
