Even lawful permanent residents (LPR) of the US, or green card holders, can be deported. If you receive a Notice to Appear before an immigration judge, then removal proceedings have begun against you. You will need to hire your own immigration attorney to represent you in these proceedings. To prevent your deportation, your attorney may file a petition for cancellation of removal, which the immigration judge may or may not approve, depending on the strength of the arguments made by your attorney.
Removal proceedings may be initiated against a lawful permanent resident for any of the following deportable offenses:
You are eligible for cancellation of removal if you meet all three of these criteria:
An inadmissible offense means a conviction of one drug crime, one crime of moral turpitude, or two or more offenses of any kind where you were sentenced to a total of five years or more in prison. Note the significant difference between an inadmissible offense and the much broader category of deportable offenses.
