Hope that the president signs another amnesty bill. Otherwise, why not just obey the laws of the U.S.? That was rude. I (different person) heard you could with a lawyer. Please consult the website United States Citizenship and Immigration Services,, for information pertaining to the individual's specific circumstances. You could before 2001; not anymore. Yes there is. The only way is to marry a US citizen.

It is possible for a U.S. citizen to marry an illegal immigrant if the immigrant has valid identification. However, marrying a citizen does not automatically confer permanent resident status or citizenship and is not a guarantee that the person will not face deportation. Such situations are assessed by the USCIS on an individual basis, for more information visit the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services website at

Can an illegal immigrant get married to someone on an H1B visa and obtain legal dependency status?

If we are talking about a modern country it is possible but difficult. Even not being an illegal immigrant it can be difficult to get legal dependency status. The reason being is that the country that you are trying to will try to prove that you are not marrying for the reason of getting citizenship. You will have to make an convincing argument. Also you cannot have a criminal record, so if you are caught being an illegal immigrant than you have just about screwed up your chances. It is harder to leave places such as the United States, Australia, England etc than it is to get in (without a legal visa)

Can you get a state ID as an illegal immigrant?

In most states the answer is no. The reason is that either a birth certificate or a passport or military id is needed to get an identification card.
