DWI convictions for immigration purposes

DWI Lawyer-Trichter & LeGrand Law Firm

Former AG, Jeff Sessions separated kids from their parents which lead to a public outcry. The current AG is handling things differently. AG Barr is attacking immigration matters silently by unilaterally issuing decisions and changing precedent. This Administration has waged a full blown war on immigration matters. See the decision below. Know the consequences when you represent your clients.

Matter of CASTILLO-PEREZ, 27 I&N Dec. 664 (A.G. 2019)

The Attorney General has issued a decision in the Matter of CASTILLO-PEREZ , 27 I&N Dec. 664 (A.G. 2019).

(1) The Immigration and Nationality Act’s “good moral character” standard requires adherence to the generally accepted moral conventions of the community, and criminal activity is probative of non-adherence to those conventions.

(2) Evidence of two or more convictions for driving under the influence during the relevant period establishes a presumption that an alien lacks good moral character under INA § 101(f), 8 U.S.C. § 1101(f).
