He is Mexican and American (has dual citizenship).
If he/she doesn't have legal documents to proof citizenship, he/she is still an illegal immigrant.
Yes, it is.
Hell yeah Gary's an freaking illegal Mexican immigrant that eats his Mexican beans all day
not if they do not have citizenship or possibly have a higher chance of it if they are applying for citizenship.
yes but you have to do it for your spouse
Marrying a citizen is not enough to get citizenship. If the marriage was done to get citizenship and there was no love or committment, the marriage is illegal.
An illegal immigrant is a person that has broken the law by entering or remaining in another country in violation of the laws of that country.
Unless you can attain refugee or asylum status, it is impossible for an illegal immigrant to attain citizenship with current U.S. laws.
YES IF YOU ARE A CITIZEN YOURSELF
They're still an illegal immigrant. Mariiage alone does not grant US citizenship to an illegal alien. The formal process of citizenship must still be completed.
Its not! It just gets people more jobs. Unless you are an illegal immigrant
No, it is not illegal, but it doesn't give that person a citizenship. To do that you need to file the right papers with immigration which may be hard since they are illegal.
Yes, usually. But there are many ways an illegal immigrant can make it difficult to get sent back. In order to to be let back into their country they need a passport. If the passport is "lost", or the illegal immigrant never had one and managed to get in without one there is then a problem. The government has to prove the person is who they say are in order for the embassy of that country to give them a new passport. The illegal immigrant has no papers. This can take weeks or months, during which you either have to keep the illegal immigrant in prison at the taxpayers expense, or let them out on bail, then they run away. If the illegal immigrant never had a passport, it is even more difficult to prove where they came from. The illegal immigrant can give a false name, and a false nationality. A mexican could claim to be Spanish. The Spanish then say they have no record of somebody of that name, and refuse to accept them. It can cost a lot of time and money to deport an illegal immigrant.
No, but you can get a temporary visa (4 years). If you are an illegal immigrant and have been a victim of a crime, you may be eligible for a U-Visa.
An illegal immigrant leaves their country to go to another country without having the proper requirements for them to migrate to the other country, while the legal immigrant went through the correct process and filings to leave his country to migrate to the other country legally.

If the immigrant is a true illegal (i.e. entered the country illegally/without inspection) even a marriage to a US citizen wont prevent him from facing possible deportation. Moreover, an immigrant CANNOT apply for citizenship, they must first apply for legal residency
Sorry, she can't.
Yes, it is illegal to marry for money to allow someone to obtain citizenship status.
Yes, but not likely. They will still have to leave the country and face a 10 year ban based on how long they were here illegally.
Yes, he will be able to get his greencard faster, but it may still be a long, grueling process. It depends on why he is illegal. If he is illegal because he snuck into the country, it will be very difficult for him to get a greencard.
