    Answered . It depends on the criminal conviction. What does the statute say, what does your indictment say, what does your plea deal say.
    You should hire a lawyer to do the analysis for you. It should not be too expensive, but it is critically important to determine if your conviction is either an aggravated felony or a "crime of violence" or otherwise makes you inadmissible. Every state's statutes read differently. HIRE A LAWYER, give him/her all your conviction records, and let him/her do the research.

    Answered . It is very likely that you are deportable and you would be placed in deportation proceedings if you fly back to the U.S. However, there are defenses available. You should get your criminal court records and discuss them with an immigration lawyer.
