my friend who has been a legal permanent resident since he was an infant is on probation for a drug conviction which he plead guilty to last summer. He received a 2yrs suspended sentence and 2yrs probation. He completed a drug program and is a year away from getting a bachelor's degree. He was told by his lawyer that he is safe from removal proceeding while he is on probation. Is this true? Can he be deported while on probation and if so is there anything he can do to avoid this??? What possible probation/suspended sentence plea combination could have avoided this. In retrospect, he believes his lawyer did not correctly advise him based on his immigration status.
