If you have no other convictions or residency issues, this infraction won't affect your immigration status.



Even if I am illegally in this country would I stll qualify for a green card if I get marry to a citizen and we have a baby on the way?


A California infraction is not a conviction under the standard federal regulations so you have nothing to worry about.


You will be able to benefit from the "petty offense" exception to the Crime of Moral Turpitude conviction. So you should be OK.
