Your question is really in two parts: First, is fraud grounds for deportment for a non-citizen and Second, can she be removed as trustee. As with most legal questions, the answer depends on the specific facts of the case, but from what you've said here it sounds like the answer to your two questions is possibly yes and yes. In general, being found guilty of a crime provides sufficient grounds for the Federal government to deport someone, but the biggest component of that is that the individual is convicted of a crime. If you gather evidence and present it to the local police department, they may be willing to arrest your father's widow. However, there is no guarantee that the police will explore the case or agree with your interpretation of the facts. In general, you have a legal recourse if an individual misappropriates your property for their own gain. You can bring a wrongful conversion lawsuit against them and try and get the money back for your truck. If you are a beneficiary of your father's trust, you may also be able to bring a lawsuit for improper management of the trust, but in general you have to have an economic interest in the trust to involve yourself in its management. Depending on your truck's value, you may be able to find an attorney to take your case on contingency, which is to say they will keep a percentage of the ultimate award.
