The female was "unlawfully present" in the U.S. when she was married thereby likely disqualifying her as being eligible for permanent residence status even though she is married to a citizen. Foreign nationals who are found to have been living illegally in the U.S. for more than 12 months are subject to deportation and barred from applying for entrance for 10 years. The issue of her being pregnant might possibly help in waiving deportation and other penalties but that is not a certainty. The marriage of a foreign national to a U.S. citizen does not guarantee permanent residence status or citizenship as some believe, it simply changes the status and priority given to the applicant. It would be strongly advisable to obtain legal counsel from an attorney qualified in Immigration issues as soon as possible.
