ICE Prioritizes DWI Policies


U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has prioritized DWI regulation per policy. More and more individuals that have been arrested for DWI will be held by ICE without bond. In addition, individuals with non-immigrant visas (NIV) are subject to having their visas revoked during the event of a DWI arrest. If the charges are acquitted, the individual can request for a reinstatement of their visa.

Clients that have been arrested and have a previous DWI conviction on their record will also be affected. Individuals should prepare evidence of rehabilitation before the time of their arrest.

Evidence of DWI rehabilitation includes:

  • Completing probation programs
  • Beginning therapy
  • Clean Urinalysis tests
  • Going to AA
  • Seeking other forms of treatment

At Mathur Law Offices, P.C., we encourage those who have been convicted of a DWI to follow the appropriate recommended treatment and keep clear documentation of all evaluations and attempts.

What Do These DWI Policies Mean?

DWI offenses are not deportable or inadmissible offenses. However, the prioritization of DWI regulations and revoking NIV during an arrest indicates the beginning of very strict enforcement policies. The best way to ensure protection is to keep clean records and documentation, as well as retain the seasoned legal counsel of a dedicated Dallas immigration attorney.
