Your question reveals an unconscious bias. You said,

= "How can a US citizen sponsor an illegal immigrant...." = If you "sponsor" them, they are not an "illegal immigrant." Careful, the way your question is phrased says a lot about you. The very term "illegal immigrant" is insulting to ....migrant workers, especially. Mexican citizens surely don't like the phrase and, by the way, Superman was apparently an "illegal immigrant" and you SURELY wouldn't want to insult HIM.

You cannot sponsor someone who is already here illegally. You CAN sponsor them if they go home and apply for entry with a sponsor who will provide a home and/or a job.

The illegal immigrant can take his United States citizen son to Mexico; however, it is highly likely that the illegal father will be detained at customs due to his lack of citizenship.

There's no such thing as an ''illegal immigrant'', a human being can't be illegal.

well if they are in Mexico then they arent an illegal immigrant anymore. If you love them then yeah marry them.

The citizen spouse has no recourse to the action as US immigration laws no longer allow a citizen spouse to apply for residency for an illegal immigrant spouse. The Mexican national will have to leave the US and file under the required USCIS regulations for reentry.

Sometimes, but each case is different, and it is very difficult if the immigrant is originally from Mexico. It certainly wouldn't hurt to consult with an immigration lawyer though.

yes, they can apply for a green card any time realy. the problem is that it helps to know someone here who can sponsor them with $$$ to get them to apply. that pretty much says that they will watch out for them, and that the government knows where to find the resident. this is how my cousins came to america.

Your spouse has to sponsor you for immigration to Mexico.

Yes a illegal immigrant can move back to Mexico by car because if they are illegal immigrant can. And they are not be force to go back to Mexico but it was their decision on going back by car. Even though they bought the car in the U.S they can still take the car with them because they bought it. Plus the illegal immigrants can stay in the U.S so they have to go.

Very difficult to do so; go to government site and find out about illegal marriages.

To sponsor someone you will need to be their employer, and they must have a skill or ability that is not generally available.

In 2011 Mexico decriminalized illegal immigration, thus becoming an administrative infraction punishable with a fine that stays around US$500. Mexico also recognizes dual citizenship, so all you have to do is to define your status, pay the corresponding fine and begin the process to acquire legal residence through the FM2 (immigrant) process. You should however, consult a legal advisor.

Possible. Was she merely turned around? or was she charged with a crime? If she make affirmative statements that she was indeed a U.S. citizen, that is a PERMANENT bar and would never be able to enter the U.S.

I am also wondering about this question. someone please help. answer is yes. If you go to www.immigrationdirect.com it'll explain everything. There is also currently something called a touchback. If an immigrant from Mexico comes here undocumented and has children and a wife here they have to gol back to Mexico but they'll be granted a greencard and eventually a residence. Hope this helps !

Yes. He should have had his wife start the procedures to sponsor his citizenship when they got married. If she knew he was illegal, she, too, could face criminal charges for housing an illegal alien. Since no illegal can enter into a legally binding contract, the marriage may not be legal either.

User Avatar

Yes. a lot of states accept their ID of their country. I know how to get a passport if they are from Mexico.

User Avatar

Yes, the marriage is valid. However, it doesn't change their status and they can still be deported.

Yes, an American citizen may sponsor a same-sex Mexican spouse for a visa, permanent residency and, ultimately, citizenship.
