Thread: Outdated Green Card...Will Deport

  1. #1
    My brother is a procrastinator. He is currently in jail, due to that fact. He didn't pay a traffic ticket and let the years go by without doing anything about it.

    He became a US resident when he was 1 month old(as per my mom). What I just became aware of is that he never renewed his green card it still has the picture of when he was a teen. He was informed yesterday that Homeland Security will be made aware of his status and soon be deported.

    Is he entitled to appeal that decision in court. If so what does he need to say to Immigration so they don't deport him. Aside from his lack of organization he is a good person that would eventually be a strong citizen.

    Please respond only if you are going to offer help. Thank you all in advance. I worry for my little brother.

    1) He deserves a kick in the pants.

    2) Assuming he would still qualify for a Permanent Resident green card, he would need to appeal with all the documentation required thereof. Also, it would help to demonstrate strong ties to the US (mortgage, job, etc).

    He needs an attorney. Proper legal advice is the way to proceed here.

    I wonder why he didn't take up Citizenship way back.

    Did your parents become US citizens? Maybe before your brother turned 18?

    You can't be deported for not paying a traffic ticket. Someone is playing joke here.

    Depends on the state, SOM. OK, for example.

    Granted, that's likely to be ruled unconstitutional, but hey. I'm just saying.

    Not due to the traffic ticket but due to not having legal residence because he hasn't updated his green card.

    Green Card was supposed to be renewed when he turned 14 even if card had not expired.
    It does say, that if he doesn't, you can lose your residency from that alone.

    I guess it was too much of a hassle to apply for citizenship. I can assure you he regrets it at this moment.
