You need to consult an immigration lawyer in your area ASAP. You also need the services of a criminal defense lawyer to defend the pending state criminal charges.
I am trying to give you a general answer to your question. We do not have an attorney-client relationship by this response on the avvo website. I have not been retained to represent you. I am licensed to practice law in Kentucky and in federal court in this state and the Southern District of Indiana. You need to seek legal advice from an attorney licensed to practice in your area..
