Background: I got a ticket for disobedience of a traffic

Hi,Background: I got a ticket for disobedience of a traffic officer. Bit of a BS ticket as I was one of many that walked through a red pedestrian signal (although the only white guy and the officer was black).As I got this ticket in Georgia and live in Idaho, I filed for plea in absentia (I'm ok with paying the costs of $480).Question: the form they send me requires me to select a whole bunch of boxes. One is that this ticket could have an impact on my visa (I'm in the USA on a green card). With ticking that box I feel I'm signing away a bunch of rights.Please let me know if it is ok to sign this document and/or what other actions I have at my disposal (I do not have the funds for trial).Thanks,Vince

I have permanent resident from 7 yrs I was approved for

HELLO, I have permanent resident from 7 yrs I was approved for citizenship, the day of the ceremony I was sent home because of a Deportation for 20 yrs ago I received from denial of Asylum. Asylum 1997 we went in front of the judge he did not approved the asylum but gave me time to continue work because I had employment based application in he same time. He just required that once that application is approved send them a copy to remove deportation. In 2003 reopening of deportation was denied because they did not receive any form showing of an approved paper.2008 I received a green card due to my spouse regardless of the outstanding deportation after I paid 1000.00 penalty since I entered in US 1996. In 2014 applied for citizenship I got approved and the day of Oath Ceremony I was sent home because the deportation is still out there. Citizenship department confirmed that the denial of Reopening of deportation was done in ERROR because a copy of an approved Labor Certificate has been submitted and is in files. Citizenship try contacting Board of immigration to fix error but could not get in touch. Citizenship told me I need to remove deportation exchange green card since they said this green card in considered unlawful because was granted while since had an open deportation. Not sure if EOIR 42A I need to file or EOIR 42B.Please Help. Thank You so muchEniko

My brother is 70 years old, diabetic, heart and kidney problems, has lived in the U.S. for 62 years, was married twice, had a son who passed away at the age of 40. He is in prison on the charge of attempted murder and will be deported to Germany (we are Ukrainian but he was born in Germany) after being released in March 2017. The advise from an immigration lawyer was to save the money I would have paid him and give it to my brother to help him in Germany. Do you agree?
