Q: Will the Feds give you back your greencard after doing jail time for money laundering?

An immigrant I know got her greencard confiscated by the Feds in NYC for money laundering, drug related of course. She will do her time soon. Considering the nature of her crime in NYC can she get it back later or will she likely be deported after she does time. She had no previous criminal history.

It depends on the crime and the length of her sentence. Your friend's family should contact an immigration attorney to evaluate.

You do have a right to an attorney at trial. But it seems like you've had many attorneys. At some point a judge may believe that a person is changing attorneys to delay a case. But ordering a person to trial without an attorney seems extreme.
