Foreign Nationals and a Prostitution-Related Charge

Interviewer: How does a prostitution charge affect immigration status? How would this kind of charge against them affect their potential citizenship or their ability to be in the country?

A Conviction for a Prostitution-Related Offense Can Result in Deportation Proceedings against the Foreign National

Paul: It would affect it dramatically because prostitution, under the Immigration Code is deemed to be a crime of moral turpitude. It’s a moral crime. A conviction for a crime for moral turpitude can certainly result in revocation of any temporary citizenship status, work status, visa, or a student visa.  We would need to be very careful with these cases when we’re dealing with people who are here on a student visa or a work visa because this conviction can negatively affect their immigration status.
