A person who has been convicted of a crime involving moral turpitude and deported is inadmissible for five years. A waiver is available in the Attorney General’s discretion if an application for readmission is granted.
Illegal reentry after deportation is not itself a CMT. However, a person who commits or is convicted of a crime involving moral turpitude, is then deported or removed, and then returns to the United States without permission is guilty of a federal criminal offense and can be sentenced to a maximum of 2, 10, or 20 years in federal prison, depending upon the criminal history prior to the initial deportation or removal.
