Will this decisions negate Obama’s Dream Act and Prosecutorial Discretion? The U.S. Supreme Court has upheld only a part of the Arizona anti immigrant law but kept in tact the provision allowing that state to direct its police and state troopers to hand over suspected illegal immigrants to ICE and DHS for deportation and removal. How will this decision affect Obama’s executive order protecting children of illegal immigrants who have been here for more than 2 years, entered under the age of 16 and are high school students or graduates? How will Arizona’s law affect the Obama announcement of prosecutorial discretion.

When a permanent resident or an illegal alien is arrested for a DUI, Domestic battery, guns or drugs, they face ICE detention and possible removal from the United States. An Immigration Judge has the authority to decide whether to allow one to apply for permanent residence or keep their green card if we can show the severity of the crime outweighs the hardship to the defendant or his or her family.
One option is for an Immigrant lawyer who does criminal defense to arrange a plea that would not affect ones immigration status in the U.S.
