CNN takes a look at the possibility of Justin Bieber being deported, as does the International Business Times. They suggest he’s receiving special treatment, but there’s no indication of that. He hasn’t been convicted of anything, so it would be unlikely for them to commence deportation proceedings. And the article is correct that he could have deportation consequences for a plea deal, but he likely won’t take a deal that would have such consequences. Instead, they will try to work out a deal that doesn’t have immigration ramifications, such as avoiding drug possesssion charges, or crimes involving moral turpitude. Justin Bieber is not worried about getting deported at this point.

The CNN article brings up a point that may surprise many people: President Obama’s administration has deported more people than any other president. They refer to him as the “deporter-in-chief”. The increased aggressiveness of the immigration officials has certainly affected the way criminal defense attorneys approach cases when an immigrant is charged, even on minor offenses and when they are legal residents.
