Question: Can I be removed from the U.S. if I have a green card (permanent residency) and I have committed a crime?

Answer: Yes. If you are not a citizen of the United States, you can be removed from the U.S. If you have valid immigration status like a green card, which is permanent residency, then it will depend on the crime that was committed, whether you are subject to removal from the United States. An experienced immigration attorney can tell you if that crime makes you subject to removal or if there might be a defense to the removal and deal with the other issues that arise in those contexts. But the bottom line is that if you are not a U.S. citizen, you can be subject to removal for certain crimes.
