If you are not a citizen of the United States and you are convicted of a crime, you often will end up serving time in United States prisons. When you are convicted of a crime, it is not unusual for you to also be threatened with the possibility of deportation once you are finished with the sentence. This not only means returning to your own country but usually more time in jail.
Those who have immigration problems while in prison will not be allowed furloughs while serving time. Many of these people have to serve more time than they might usually because they aren’t allowed release to halfway homes or places like these. It is important to get immigration assistance to help fight the USCIS detainer to make your prison sentence easier.
