My boyfriend is from another country and has a green card with conditions from a
previous marriage of 1.5 years. He wants those conditions removed. I own a home,
and he wants me to put him on the deed as he says owning property in America will
help his case. Is this true?

No, it is not true. Owning property in the U.S. does not help the immigration case, just like not owning property in the U.S. does not hurt it. If you put him on the deed, however, you will give up half the ownership of and value of your home to him, and will not be able to remove him later without his consent--i.e. without buying him out. Don't do this.
