Defending Clients From Immigration Charges Across Florida
Even in our recent financial downturn, the United States is known as the land of opportunity, and with good reason. Millions of people across the world enter the United States every year to earn a living for themselves and their families. Many foreign workers come to Florida each year to harvest the citrus crop. Undocumented workers, often from Mexico, frequently rely on individuals to transport them from one part of the United States to Florida to work. The United States government goes to great lengths to investigate and prosecute individuals accusing of transporting illegal aliens, alien smuggling or other immigration-related crimes. Conviction on these crimes can lead to years in federal prison. Further, if you are not a citizen of the United States, these allegations can lead to deportation and removal proceedings as well.
If you have been charged with transporting an illegal alien or other immigration-related crimes, it is critical to have a skilled criminal defense lawyer on your side. At O’Brien Hatfield, P.A., our law firm has successfully defended clients accused of transporting illegal aliens throughout Florida.
This includes obtaining a dismissal in a case where our client faced the charge of conspiracy to bring and harbor illegal aliens into the USA.
