Individuals have no say in whether a non-citizen in the United States should be deported such decisions are made by the USCIS. Unless the person who has been granted permanent resident status commits a federal or state crime which constitutes a felony conviction he or she is not in danger of deportation.

Anyone can visit England with the appropriate documentation. A person who has been given the status of a permanent resident in Spain could in fact be of any nationality. Under normal conditions. a Spanish national (i.e. holding a passport issued by Spain) can visit England without restriction providing there is no ban etc placed on the individual (as in, he may be a known criminal, or previously deported from the UK, etc).

Does an illegal alien become a legal resident by marrying a US resident not citizen but US resident?

There is a lot of paperwork involved! Even if you married a US resident or even citizen that does not make you a us citizen. In fact, you could get into a lot of trouble if they deem that you purposely entered the US to get married to become a US citizen. Although it is possible. Your spouse would have to be a permanent resident or US citizen for you to become a permanent resident. The US prefers you marry (in our out of the US) then the permanent resident or citizen applies for your entry OR the US citizen of Permanent Resident applies before for you to enter the US and then you get married in the US and apply for Permanent residency. Great site I found as my husband immigrated from the UK on a Fiance visa. but what if you don't have a date of birth I also, and may be wrong, but if it is deemed that you married to create a citizenship or legal residency, that might be unlawful and you could get into trouble. Though, a lot of military marry women in foreign lands which brings them here. Which is a lot different then someone unlawfully doing so. The US doesn't exactly make it a point to extradite spouses.

Yes, it sounds like you can apply for permanent residency in Canada if you live at least 2 out of every 5 years in that country.

Could a green card holder be deported for alleged animal abuse?

If convicted a US citizen can be put in jail for animal abuse, then it's highly likely that a green card holder can also be put in jail or deported, or both. When you are in the United States you are subject to its laws. Although the laws regarding animal abuse may vary from state to state. As a rule of thumb, I would tend to think that if there is any question at all you should probably steer clear of it. It's also the decent thing to do. A green card holder is a permanent US resident and has all the rights and privileges like a US citizen except the right to vote. He would pay a fine or go to jail but would not be deported. If the charge was a felony then YES you can be deported

When a permanent resident with a valid green card marries a girl who is on a student visa what is the process for her to become a legal U.S. resident?

From what i understand the U.S. legal resident would first have to become a naturalized citizen and then he could begin the petition of asking for his wife. I do not believe that a person w/ a green card, even if valid, can ask for an immigrant. Actually, a permanent resident can file a petition for his or her spouse, but from what INS told me, it takes 2-3 years at best to get the petition approved. However, if the permanent resident became a naturalized citizen first, it would only take 6 months or so to get the same paperwork approved. >>short answer>>> get you citizenship first, then petition for her,.. it's faster>>
