ABSTRACT
The article discusses the tension between the Six Amendment analysis by federal and lower state courts regarding immigration consequences of criminal judgments and the ethical duties the attorney owes to his noncitizen client. It notes on the courts' conclusion that failure to advise a defendant of the prospect of deportation does not make up assistance of counsel. Criminal defense attorneys have obligations to advise noncitizen clients of the immigration consequences of a criminal conviction.
