Mr. Mitra’s internship with the Miami Public Defender’s Office provided him with experience in criminal law. When dealing with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), some knowledge of criminal law and procedure is a valuable asset, especially when detained by ICE.
Detained by ICE
ICE may detain you if:
- You committed a “crime of moral turpitude”
- You have multiple convictions where the sentences add up to five years or more in jail
- Drug offenses or ICE suspects you are involved in drug trafficking
- Human trafficking
- Terrorist activity
- Money laundering
You do not have to be convicted of some of the above items. There does not have to be ironclad evidence. The government officials have broad authority, and only have to have enough evidence to suggest that you are involved for the USCIS to detain you. Because of this broad power, it is important to get the assistance of a committed and skilled attorney like Pushkar Mitra.
