"90 Day Fiance" fans know that Ashey Martson and Jay Smith went through a lot of drama in season 6 of the TLC show. In fact, at one stage, people even wondered if they ever married in the USA. Posting up a copy of a marriage certificate, Ashley explained on Instagram, "Jay and I went to City Hall in Harrisburg, PA, said our vows, then flew out to Vegas for an actual ceremony a week later. This is why no one can find a public certificate in the Vegas records." Well, now it looks like Jay may still face deportation, and possibly they never filed their green card papers. Apparently, Jay's been served notice to appear before an immigration judge on May 8.

Fans of '90 Day Fiance' heard that Ashley Martson recently mentioned ICE and Jay Smith

According to John Yates, a social commentator, Ashley talked about Jay, noting that, "ICE had come to her house with an arrest warrant for Jay." In his post, John showed a photo of a document that appears to come from the US Department of Homeland Security. The name's given as Conroy Smith, Jay's real name. it also mentions that it's served on someone who is Jamaican, and not a US citizen.

It notes he arrived in the USA on March 6, 2018, and his stay was valid until about June 3, 2018.

Now, according to this summons to appear before an immigration lawyer, it seems Jay stayed in the country over the time allocated to him. Basically, this could mean that he could be deported because he violated the immigration laws of the country. If this document's for real then Jay could be in real trouble.

Of course, this would not be the first time that the "90 Day Fiance" franchise faced issues with immigrants and Home Security. They probably keep a string of immigration lawyers on speed-dial.

Did Jay and Ashley fail to file the green card papers after marrying?

Here's how it works. First, they should have applied for a K1 Visa as all the "90 Day Fiance" couples do. Next, they get married. Over time Ashey did show the KI visa papers to fans, and the marriage certificate.

But she may have stalled on step three, which is to get a green card. It takes a special application to adjust their immigration status. As they met two of these requirements, it is possible that Ashley either pulled the papers or that they never completed the full process. In fact, in one episode of season 6, Ashley said to the camera, "I still have not filed his paperwork for him to stay here." Maybe she really didn't!

There's plenty of drama between these two, but fans saw that as a lot of fakery. Last season, they said they split but never split. They made much of Jay cheating on her. Later, Ashley said on Instagram that the fake storyline came from TLC. Now, ahead of the premiere of "90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?" Ashley made an Instagram Story saying she would get a divorce and ICE would deport him as he allegedly cheated again.

More fakery or real problems for the '90 Day Fiance' couple?

Somehow, this looks too genuine to be actual fakery. The document says Jay's eligible for deportation, and it's unlikely ICE would play along with TLC to produce a non-genuine document. In other words, while lies and wolf-crying too often may make for good ratings, ICE doesn't play with overstayers these days. This could well be an end to Jay Smith's five-seconds of fame in the USA.

What do you think about the fact that Ashley Martson and Jay Smith may not have filed green card papers? Do you think Jay'll do the right thing and make his appearance before an immigration judge on May 8?
