Supreme Court Upholds Arizona “show papers” law.

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.

Motions to Vacate Judgment of Convictions

Mr. Carrico has several Motions to Vacate Judgment of Convictions of his clients who are either Lawful Permanent Residents or Illegal Immigrants. These convictions range from simple Possession of Drug Paraphernalia up to Trafficking in Controlled Substances. All of these convictions are deportable offenses. These motions are based upon the U.S. Supreme Court Decision of Padilla v. Kentucky, 559 U.S. ___ 130 S Ct. 1473 (2010). The U.S. Supreme Cpourt held that when an alien or immigrant pleads guilty to a crime without knowing the potential immigration consequences of his plea, the defendant has a right to move the criminal court to Vacate Judgment and Dismiss the conviction.

Mr Carrico has filed this motion in Washoe County, Reno Justice Court, Washoe County Sparks Justice Court, Humbolt County District Court in Winnemucca NV and Nye County District Court in Pahrump Nevada.

We shall keep you informed when Court Decisions are rendered in this matter.
