This deportation ground requires the conviction must be for an offense specifically listed in the statute.  This includes “a crime of domestic violence, a crime of stalking, or a crime of child abuse, child neglect, or child abandonment.”[68]  These are the only substantive offenses listed in the conviction-based deportation ground.  See § § 22.17, 22.24, infra.  “Aiding and abetting” a substantive offense is probably included within the substantive offense itself.  See § 22.17(B), infra. In addition, there is a question whether additional “non-substantive” offenses, such as attempt and conspiracy, solicitation, accessory after the fact, and the like, are included, even though they are not listed.  See § 22.18, infra.
