marijuana. He served 1 yr & was deported 2 Mexico. Is there any way we can still get married & bring him back 2 the US, so he can be legal?
I agree with collegue: you need to bring all the conviction documents to an immigration attorney who is experienced with immigration consequences of criminal convictions. Your boyfrined might be an "aggravated felon" (lawyer must review case) and barred from coming back to the U.S. for a LONG time. If an aggravated felon is caught re-entering, the prison sentences arte up to 20 years.
Unfortunately it is doubtful that your boyfriend will ever be able to return to the U.S. Since he has a conviction for sale of a controlled substance he was most likely removed as an aggravated felon and is permanently inadmissible to the United States not only due to the controlled substance conviction, but because an consular and/or immigration officer will have reason to believe that he is a trafficker in controlled substances. Marrying him will to change these facts.
