I got DEOJ deal , so I plead guilty to PC 550(b) misdemeanor. After I plead Guilty I understand that if I plea guilty, a conviction will be seen based on immigration Law. I found that new PC 1203.43 effective from Jan 2016 will help people to withdraw guilty after DEOJ secusecfullly for immgration purpose. However, i am confusing that dose this PC 1203.43 only applies to Drug cases? Dose this fit my case also ?

Penal Code section 1203.43 does not apply to your case, as Penal Code section 550(b) is not a drug offense at all. 550(b) deals with insurance fraud. Instead, what I would do it comply with the terms of your DEJ and get the case dismissed. Good luck.
You do not say how long ago you plead to the PC 550(b) violation. It is not a drug offense, and therefore you are not entitled to relief under Penal Code section 1203.43.
However, you may have a separate basis to withdraw your plea if your lawyer did not properly advise you of the immigration consequences. You should hire a criminal defense attorney who is knowledgeable about immigration issues.
