A: There is an insufficient factual basis to determine that. It you were given asylum, the answer is no you cannot visit your home country.

A: Being a resident for 20 years and then visiting your home country for 2 weeks does not make one deportable. To be deportable or inadmissible, you’d have to do something in violation of the terms of your status, like commit certain crimes. If you have any concerns regarding any actions that might make you deportable or inadmissible, you should talk to an immigration attorney.
