Long Island Deportation Lawyers

June 12, 2018

Long Island consists of two counties. Nassau county occupies the part of the island adjacent to New York City. Suffolk county occupies the rest of the island. For decades, New Yorkers have chosen to make their homes here. The cool shores of the island provide an escape from the warm center of the city during the summer. Today, millions of people make this their primary home while commuting to other parts of New York state. They live on Long Island in one of the many cities and towns that dot the landscape here. While people have been drawn here from the rest of the country, others come here because they are looking for work or a place to live and do not have the legal right to remain in this community. People who are here illegally may be subject to deportation from Long Island at any point in time.

Immigration Laws

Like other municipalities, Long Island officials do not set their own immigration laws. Rather, they enforce them. Those who are found to be living without permission in Long Island may face a variety of penalties. The type of penalties will depend on many other factors that may be part of their case. For example, someone who is merely found to have overstayed a visa with no other illegal activity on their part will face different penalties from the law than someone who has engaged in other illicit activities such as working off the books and being part of a gang. It is important to keep these details in mind should anyone be facing problems as a result of their unauthorized immigration to this part of the country. Local officials are sympathetic to the needs of those who have broken American immigration laws but they will still enforce such laws.

The Possible Penalties

Once caught in the net of American immigration laws, people typically have multiple choices. For those in Long Island, they can simply agree to leave the community. Many judges are happy to impose no penalties for the decision to leave voluntarily. Other judges may be inclined to view the decision to leave voluntarily fine as long as the person agrees to do so fast. Those who have been caught with a previous immigration violation may face additional penalties. In that case, they may not be granted the right to leave. A judge may require them to serve time for what is considered to be a felony. The amount of time may be as short a month or it may be much longer. Local judges, like judges on this issue everywhere else, must adhere to federal guidelines when it comes to deciding the penalties for illegally entering the United States.

Help From Others

While this process can be surprisingly quick, it can also be one that allows the defendant time to find legal help. Legal help is designed to help people combat this system. A lawyer can offer many kinds of insights that might not otherwise be evident to layperson. For example, the lawyer can point out that there are options that are previously unknown to the person facing such charges. People who are here without permission may not be aware of the kind of specific visas and other kinds of laws that allow people permission to stay under certain circumstances. Some people may be allowed to stay if they have seen a crime and are willing to come forward and speak to law authorities about such activities. Even if such activities are illegal and they were participants, they may still qualify. Good legal help can offer assistance during any Long Island deportation proceedings.

Developing a Plan

The island tends to be relatively fine with new people even if such people do not have official authorization to move here. However, it is imperative to keep in mind that even if local law enforcement officials have a certain amount of leeway, they do not make the laws. They cannot simply refuse to enforce American immigration laws. They must uphold the laws that are made in Washington. Someone here illegally cannot expect to live on Long Island and face no consequences should they be found out by such officials. Therefore, it is best to develop a plan in advance. This plan should include what to do if discovered. A good plan will include knowledge of local and national immigration laws. This is why help from lawyers with a specialty in this area is truly important when crafting a personal defense.
