Where Immigration Law and Criminal Law Meet

When criminal law and immigration law collide, you need a skilled and aggressive lawyer on your side. Find an attorney, like Manny Guerra, who can represent you in both immigration and criminal cases.

Helping Immigrants Facing Criminal Charges
If you or a loved one is a non-citizen facing criminal charges involving drugs, DUI, identity theft, a violent crime, or anything else, contact us as soon as possible. Even long-term residents are routinely deported from the U.S. for committing serious offenses. A criminal record can make you inadmissible to the U.S. — meaning you cannot come back to visit your friends or family.
You need to take even minor charges seriously, too. These can affect your ability to get a green card.
Many criminal law attorneys do not fully understand what criminal charges can do to your immigration status, and many immigration lawyers do not practice criminal defense. At Guerra Law Firm, P.C., in McAllen, Texas, we practice in both areas of law — and we stay up to date in each — to provide the best service to our clients.
Accused of Helping Immigrants or Running a Stash House?
Authorities in the valley are cracking down on what is called “illegal alien transport.” If you have been accused of helping immigrants from Mexico get into Texas or providing stash houses, you could face jail time. Even if you were trying to help people who are seeking asylum, you need a lawyer and fast.
Under federal law, it is a felony to assist someone who you know is in the U.S. illegally by providing transportation or shelter or helping him or she get a job. A conviction can result in fines, jail time, and other serious penalties
