What is an Aggravated Felony?

///What is an Aggravated Felony?

“Aggravated felony” describes a category of offenses carrying harsh immigration consequences for non-citizens convicted of such crimes. Regardless of their immigration status, non-citizens convicted of an “aggravated felony” are prohibited from receiving most forms of relief that would spare them from deportation, including asylum, and from being readmitted to the United States at any time in the future.  Despite the ominous-sounding name, an “aggravated felony” need not be “aggravated” or a “felony.”  It is an offense that Congress labeled as such, and  includes many nonviolent and minor offenses.
