(B)  Warning.  Many domestic violence convictions fall into other grounds of deportation, such as aggravated felonies, or crimes of moral turpitude.  The immigration consequences described here pertain to domestic violence convictions that qualify under the domestic violence deportation ground, but do not qualify under another ground of deportation.  The conviction must also be analyzed under other grounds of deportation, and the immigration consequences associated with those other grounds must be evaluated.  See § 22.6, infra.
