As far as i know - deportation and you wont be able to come back for at least 5 years. But - the chance they will catch you is not that big, if you are carefull They'll will deny you any visa for 3 years if you stayed illegally in the U.S for 180 days to a year; 10 years for more than a year illegally.

An undocumented immigrant will not be able to file in a passport application on behalf of his/her child. Only a US citizen can do this. However a passport application for a minor child will require the parental consent from both its parents and also the proof of the citizenship status of the parents. Identification documents of both the parents should also be submitted along with the application.

Yes. A child born on American soil is an American citizen. I beleieve the question is meant to refer American soil as United States soil, being that the western hemisphere is America, therefore all children born there are Americans. And yes, a child born in the USA is a citizen of the USA, regardless if his parents are undocumented. That is the major problem facing the undocumented immgration in the US. Families are being separated because undocumanted parents are deported while the US-born child has the rights to remain in USA.

You cant reuturn back when a illegal immigrant gets caught being illegal they deport them and they tell them how much time they cant be in the US

This almost sounds like a trick question; if you are a citizen you can't be in the US illegally, and if you're in the US illegally you could not be a citizen! That being said, if a person is residing in the US without a valid visa or residency permit, they would be classified as an illegal alien or the more politically correct term, "undocumented immigrant".

The penalties are suspension or being expelled from school or distinct. Being fined or arrested.

Yes, he is an undocumented alien, therefore illegal. Once he is reported or apprehended in the commission of a crime (sometimes as simple as a traffic stop), he is likely to be deported.

It is a legal marriage in the US. It is not a claim to legal residency for visitor or undocumented alien though. The laws of the visitors and undocumented aliens country of origin will mandate whether it is a legal marriage there.

Answer: If you are being abuse and is an illegal immigrant, what you need to do is leave her, because she can report you to INS and you will get deported. Because you are illegal, there is really nothing much you can do with the legal system.

No. The marriage would not be allowed. Also, marrying a US citizen regardless of the circumstances does not prevent an illegal immigrant from being deported.

There are an estimated 45 million illegal aliens in the US in 2010. Many pay taxes, so undocumented worker is a misnomer - they are illegal aliens.

If you're a US citizen, they're not going to take your citizenship away for marrying an "illegal". They may deport the undocumented immigrant and send you to jail if it looks like you were trying to break the law, though.

If an undocumented (illegal) immigrant is married to a U.S. citizen, then they are a U.S. citizen. So their divorce from another U.S. citizen won't affect the status of their child at all.

Yes. An undocumented immigrant, someone without a valid visa, green card or US citizenship, can marry in Illinois. Immigration status does not affect marriage. You must show ID to get a marriage license, but that ID can be a foreign passport and no one checks for visas. Effective June 1, 2014, same-sex couples are allowed to marry in Illinois.Yes.

unless the undocumented spouse plans to sneak into another coutry(wherever you are going) the individual granting exit will know that that person is undocumented. So, I'd suggest you not leave

An immigrant can get another sponsor if the sponsor if the immigrant is on H1B. But the new sponsor need to file a new H1B for the immigrant.

The Estimated Mexican Immigrant Population in the US by 2012 is 420,420 immigrants. :)

The nationality of an immigrant to the USA is their "citizenship". Usually the passport that the immigrant uses to enter the USA identifies their Nationality.

This would be dependent on circumstances, such as the mother being abusive.
