    I want to renew my green card in 6 months but I have a recent conviction. Shoplifting but was downgraded. I also have other convictions but also was downgraded and one dismissed. So now I have one shoplifting conviction. This means I can't apply for my citizenship because it hasn't been 5 years yet but will this affect my immigration status renewal?

    Yes, it might. See an immigration lawyer.
    These days of US OPEN BORDERS, if you STOP BREAKING LAWS, behave yourself, you might get a FREE pass. Chill out with the thieving, looting, stealing, law breaking, because the gravy train is soon gonna stop running and mass deportations will soon (in a year or two) return.

    Agree, talk to an immigration lawyer & see what they might be able to do for you. He/she should also be able to answer any questions you might have.

    The US is the land of opportunity. That does not mean steal everything you want. I concur you have multiple issues of honesty. You need a lawyer.
