ACLU | What Justin Bieber’s Arrest Would Mean for Another Non-Citizen

What Justin Bieber’s Arrest Would Mean for Another Non-Citizen

When I wrote about Justin Bieber’s trouble with the law last week, we didn’t know how far he’d fall in just a few days. Now Bieber has been arrested for late-night drag racing in Miami Beach. If convicted, another immigrant in his situation would very likely languish in immigration detention before being deported. That person—like 84 percent of people in immigration detention– would also likely not have an immigration attorney, let alone a high-priced one.

While the media is focused on what will happen to Bieber, let’s instead focus on what will happen to all of the other immigrants who are detained and deported for lesser offenses than his. Learn more about them.
