Best Answer

No. A felony conviction disqualifies you from getting a resident alien card (aka green card); even a misdemeanor can, depending on the nature of the offense. Either case can lead to deportation, so tread carefully.

Will an illegal alien married to a us citizen be deported for driving under the influence?

Very possible. Being married to a US citizen has nothing to do with it if you haven't applied for citizenship. Driving under the influence has a lesser of a penalty than driving while intoxicated. Never the less, it is still a crime. If you do get deported, you will not be allowed back into the country and if you re-enter illegally, you will be convicted of felony re-entry after deportation and will spend time in a Federal prison. Another problem is how where you driving if you are illegal? Illegals can not legally possess a driver's license.

Is it illegal to marry a US citizen for the purpose of getting a green card?

Entereing into a fraudulent marriage of convenience to obtain permanent residence status and/or citizenship is a federal felony offense. If convicted both parties are subject to a maximum sentence of 5 years in a federal facility and a $200,000 fine. After serving the imposed sentence the foreign national will be deported and permanently barred from reentering the US. If the citizen spouse is also convicted he or she will have a permanent record of a federal felony after serving the imposed sentence. Marriage to a US citizen no longer guarantees permanent residency or citizenship to a foreign national who is unlawfully present within the US.
