Best Answer

A foreign national who is unlawfully present in the US is not eligible for permanent residency or citizenship unless they qualify as a refugee or asylee. The person must return to their country of origin and apply for reentry under US Immigration laws. A foreign national who has been unlawfully present in the US for 12 months or less is barred from applying for entry for 3 years. A foreign national who has been unlawfully present in the US for more than 12 months is barred from applying for entry for 10 years.
