Bronx, NY asked in Criminal Law, Federal Crimes and Immigration Law for New York

Q: Why are a lot of illegal immigrant criminals still here after doing their time? Especially felons!

I asked if a friend I knew will get deported after doing time for 2 yrs money laundering (drug related) and i get "are you kidding me" from an attorney, as if America is not already harboring illegal immigrants who are felons who did NOT get deported! If they were deported, why do they get to come back then??? So I did not ask a foolish question the first time! THANK YOU!
