I have applied and have been an Alien Resident since 1990, and renewed my Alien Resident card in 2011 without a problem, but when I applied for US citizenship in 2015 I ran into problem, not only did they deny citizenship, but put me in removal proceedings. Also I reside in Miami, FL and the conviction took place in Know County Illinois.
