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.
