Texas law restricts the rights of felons to a certain degree. For instance, convicted felons cannot serve on a jury. They are also barred from certain professions. For instance, a convicted felon cannot work as a pharmacist, school bus driver, physician, police officer and as a funeral home director. Also, the immigration status of convicted felons can have a much bigger impact on their rights. For example, those with ordinary visitors or student visa may be deported back to their home countries if they are convicted of a felony charge. Legal residents or those who have a green card may lose their permanent resident status and also face deportation if they are convicted of a felony charge.
