My boyfriend got arrested on Friday because he had a warrant but the reason was because he was drunk in public and the thing is that he does not have his green card anymore but is it true that he will be deported because of something that was not a very bad crime??? He was deported twice I guess but can he get his visa over there and then take a test to become a u.s citizen???? I need the help I can get. He wants to get married too so what do I do??
There are several factors that will impact your boyfriend's case, including why he doesn't have his green card anymore and the details about his prior deportations. Marrying a U.S. citizen could give him more options to be in the United States legally, but depending on his history, it might not solve all his immigration problems. Your boyfriend's case is complicated, and he needs to talk to an immigration attorney in person as soon as possible. An attorney will need to review all the facts of his case and any documents he has in more detail in order to advise him of his options.

Mr. Murray's response is NOT legal advice and does NOT create an attorney-client relationship. You should NOT rely on this response. Mr. Murray's response was generated without conducting a full inquiry as would occur during a face to face attorney-client consultation. It is likely that the response above may be made less accurate, or become entirely inaccurate, as you, i.e. the questioner, disclose additional facts that should only be discussed during a private consultation with an attorney. I strongly recommend that you consult an attorney who is licensed to practice law in your state (or, in the case of immigration law, and attorney in ANY state), whereupon all relevant facts will be discussed. All responses posted by Mr. Murray on Avvo.com are intended as general information for the education of the public, and not for any specific individual.
I think at this juncture the best thing to do is to find an immigration attorney in CA. We need to know much more of the facts of the case to give you any guidance.
Please consult an attorney experienced in immigration with knowledge of criminal consequences on immigration. Your post requires consideration of entire background history criminal as well as immigration to provide an appropriate answer. Best Wishes!
