You need to consult with an immigration attorney who handles removal (deportation issues) involving criminal matters. USCIS will run the person's fingerprints as part of the renewal process. The warrant will come up. Not only is it possible that the warrant could become an issue immigration wise, but it is also possible that the filing could lead to the person being taken into custody by the appropriate authorities based upon the warrant.
The immigration consequences of convictions depend on the exact language of the statute under which the conviction took place.
You need to retain an experienced immigration lawyer to review all the facts, including the court disposition and the charging documents, in order to advise you, and handle the case.
