by Calvin Lewis. Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association. 2nd edition. 2007.
83 pages.

Aimed at Texas criminal defense attorneys, this title serves as an aid when representing non-citizen defendants. It is divided into two parts: the first provides an overview of immigration law, focusing on the categories of immigration status, grounds for expulsion, and the treatment of convictions for immigration purposes. The second part looks at the immigration consequences of twenty sections of the Texas Penal Code. This second part serves as a good resource for Texas lawyers as it analyzes specific Texas crimes and offers suggestions to avoid immigration-related consequences. Also includes selected US statutes, a status questionnaire, a disposition chart, a list of immigration law specialists, and a motion for appointment of co-counsel.
