It’s possible the "immigration issues" could stem from Brown’s past legal troubles. In 2009, he was arrested in a domestic violence case, and subsequently charged with felony assault, after attacking his then-girlfriend Rihanna. Brown pled guilty. In 2013, he was arrested again for felony assault in Washington, D.C.
