DUI Charges and Immigration Consequences

If you are facing your first DUI charge – and no one was injured – it is not likely that you will be jailed. But Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will put you on a priority list for arrest and deportation.

DUI charges, like all criminal charges, can still cause problems for immigrants.
