AnswerMy sister did, and they did, and the illegal alien received citizenship. One year later he left her and left her a note that said, "I died in Mexico".

well that was just rude icant answer your question for sure you need to contact a lawyer.i have talked to several people that say if you prove hardship on the family then yes you can become a citizen without having to stay in the foreign born country very long but others say if you cant prove hardship then the illegal alien will have to stay in there country for 10 years. good luck!

I'm not sure about whom you are referring to: do you mean the baby getting citizenship, or the illegal alien spouse?

If you are asking about the child of a legal U.S. resident or citizen, and an illegal alien person, then the answer is that the child automatic U.S. citizenship if the at least one parent was a U.S. citizen, OR if the child was born inside the U.S.

If you are wondering about the illegal alien spouse, then they CANNOT gain U.S. residency (the first step to U.S. citizenship) while still inside the U.S. illegally. They must first leave the U.S., and apply for a Spousal Resident's Visa from inside a country where they have citizenship. The U.S. spouse will be their sponsor. The child is legally irrelevant in this case (except perhaps to show a possibly suspicious INS official that the marriage is indeed a real one, and not a fraud). The child CANNOT be the illegal's sponsor. So, should the U.S. citizen die (or divorce) before the illegal alien's residency visa paperwork finishes, then the alien is out of luck, and can't use the child as a reason to get a visa.
