That's something only the legal system can answer and depending on what State you live in. I sure wish it were true in British Columbia where I live. Many countries around the world have a strict policy that if you break their laws then you are either imprisoned or deported and well it should be for all countries. There are laws for a reason in each country (no matter whether we think them fair or not) and once in that country, we know the rules so if we break the law then you pay the price. To answer the question, yes. There is a special deportation charge for any legal alien that is convicted of a domestic assault violation of the criminal law. It would ultimately be the decision on the Immigration Judge if the alien is ordered deported.
