Understanding & Reducing the Immigration Consequence of Criminal Records


    What a family preparedness plan is and how to create one.Various options for childcare arrangements in the event you are detained.How to deal with family issues while in ICE detention.

The following information comes from a fact sheet that Root & Rebound prepared with the Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC, www.ilrc.org). It explains the overlap between the criminal justice and immigration legal systems and describes ways you might be able to clean up your criminal record to help with immigration consequences. While these options will not be available to every immigrant with a record in California, we hope more people and families can advocate and stay together with this information and the resources that follow.
