Generally, a petty theft falls within the "one petty offense" exception to deportation. Time for you to hire an experienced immigration attorney.

Something does not seem correct here. Petty Theft in Florida is a misdemeanor and generally not a deportable offense unless you have other criminal convictions. You need to consult with an experienced immigration attorney who can review your criminal and immigration histories. Only then can a determination be made.
