Default Green Card Question

An example, a person has received their Green Card and are on Conditional Status.
That person goes out, has some drinks and is stopped by the police and is found to be
over the legal limit for alcohol and receives a Driving While Intoxicated. Loses
their license and know has this on their record. Could that person be denied
permanant residency and be deported back to the country where they came from??

Was it a felony? If so, then they can lose PR status and be deported.

This is the reason why a GC holder should not have drunk until he is naturalized

Maybe a pray can cause the computer to misread the record when doing the background
check. You know how very coordinated they are now.

No, no, no. Do not drink and drive. Whatever your status.

It's possible but unlikely. In practice many states do not class it as a felony
(sometimes states distinguish DUI and DWI here) and, even if they do, the length of
jail time (if any) may be low enough to not warrant deportation.

I agree. Drinking is not that great. Drinking and Driving is terrible. It's not a
matter of whether or not you get caught. Drinking and driving almost always causes
heartache. Please refrain from drinking if you are going to be driving. Treat every
occasion when you have been drinking as a special one and treat yourself to a CAB!
If you can't afford a cab, you can't afford that drink. (Preacher mode/off)
