Can a Colombian citizen with a US permanent resident status, obtained through asylum, go back to their country of citizenship

Fort Lauderdale, FL |

As a Colombian citizen with a permanent resident (green card) status in the U.S., obtained through political asylum, is there any way to go back to my country of citizenship without jeopardizing my permanent resident status or even my re-entry to the U.S.?

Let me say this clearly, DO NOT GO TO COLOMBIA!!!!

You can go once you are a citizen do NOT go prior to that time. The CBP/USCIS can revoke your green card and your asylum Do not take this risk,
