Best Answer

Under the Immigration and Nationality Act any immigrant convicted of an aggravated felony is deportable. An aggravated felony included any felony punishable under the Controlled Substances Act. However, the U.S. Supreme Court decided on December 5, 2006, that immigration courts cannot deport aliens convicted of minor state drug offenses that are not felonies under federal law. So.. yes if the felony is defined under Federal law an immigrant can be deported.

Nothing, you only have to be married for 3 years before they can revoke a green card for such a matter. And they don't even revoke a green card just for that, they have to prove that the marriage was entered unlawfully and not for the right reasons. The government is not going to force you to stay married to someone just to keep their green card active
