This book attempts to list the many grounds of deportation and inadmissibility, and to suggest how to arrange a disposition of the criminal case that will not trigger them, e.g., dispositions that are not a crime of moral turpitude or an aggravated felony conviction.  Because the elements of the statutes of conviction are different in the 50 or more different jurisdictions, and because the records of conviction vary considerably from case to case, these suggestions must be regarded as the beginning points for legal research to determine whether a given disposition is or is not a safe haven, and, if so, how safe a haven it is.
