I am noticing it is not that easy to get someone deported because of expenses. Unless they have done some crime here in America, then it seems as though no one cares. * If the unlawfully present immigrant appears in a court of law regardless of the reason for him being there, authorities are required to take him into custody and remand him to Immigration officials. Whether or not he will be deported depends upon if he qualifies as a refugee or asylee.

Are illegal immigrants deported to their country?

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.

How can a U.S. citizen marry his common law wife who is an undocumented illegal immigrant without her being deported?

It is no longer possible for a citizen to apply for permanent residency/ citizenship for an immigrant spouse who entered the U.S. illegally. (INA Sect: 212(a)(9)(B) and 8 USC 1182(a)(9)(B). Marrying a U.S. citizen does not automatically confer permanent resident status or citizenship on a foreign national. Therefore, marrying the person would not solve the problem of her being unlawfully present. She would be required to voluntarily return to her country of origin or be deported by authorities.

I don't know where you can marry someone without ID. But, you need to think before marrying an illegal. IF you do marry and IF your spouse is discovered, the penalty is deportation. Are you ready for that? IF you have had children, are you ready for them to lose a parent? Are you willing to chance becoming a single parent? If you truly love this person, the best thing you can do is help them become a citizen or at least a resident alien. Then you can marry without fear and worry. Life is hard enough. Why knowingly create more difficulty for yourself?
