Firearms Offenses in NY

Charged With a Crime While Seeking Immigration into the U.S.?

The State of New York is among the most severe in the nation when it comes to the regulation of firearms. If you have been arrested for Criminal Possession of a Weapon, you face heavy penalties, including the possibility of prison time and fines, as well as having a felony on your criminal record. Firearms offenses can be especially complicated for immigrants when compared to other crimes. In many cases a gun offense will be grounds for deportation for green card or visa holders. It does not disqualify admission into the country, but it does lead to possible banishment. It is not relevant whether it was a felony or a misdemeanor.

Section 237 of the Immigration and Nationality Act makes it possible for you to be removed from the country if you are convicted of " purchasing, selling, offering for sale, exchanging, using, owning, possessing, or carrying, or of attempting or conspiring to purchase, sell, offer for sale, exchange, use, own, possess, or carry, any weapon, part, or accessory which is a firearm or destructive device." In the face of such strict regulations regarding your case, you will need the support of an effective New York immigration lawyer to advise you of your rights and help you work to defend against a criminal deportation.
