What does it mean to sponsor an illegal immigrant?

The question is slightly ambiguous, since technically you cannot sponsor an illegal immigrant. If the immigrant is already in the country illegally, they cannot be sponsored for entry into the country. You can sponsor an immigrant, but there are conditions on someone re-entering the United States who has already been an illegal immigrant. First, sponsoring an immigrant. There is a category of immigration called family sponsorship, whereby the family member of the immigrant (who is already a legal U.S. citizen) can sponsor the immigrant's entry into the country. The family member must submit an Affidavit of Support, which shows that the sponsor will financially support the immigrant. Proof of income must be provided along with the application. This only applies, however, to immigrants who have not yet entered the country illegally. Illegal aliens who wish to re-enter the country legally are generally barred for three years from doing so. There are exceptions to this rule, but generally, any person who has been in the United States illegally for 180 days or more will be barred from re-entry for three years. Aliens will be barred for 10 years if they were illegally in the country for one year or more. These laws surrounding legal and illegal immigration and sponsorship are contained in the updated Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 and the Anti terrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996
