We are not entirely sure. Have you seen it flower? Have you tried to pull it and seen the roots?
One suspect is Aegopodium or Bishops weed. A variegated (green and white markings) form is often grown by gardeners as a ground cover, but it is not recommended as it has invasive tendencies. Here is a page about it and how to effectively control it:

The control measures listed would also work for other weeds or unwanted plants.
