    Answered . Whether he is eligible for immigration benefits depends on exactly what happened in 2004. An attorney would need to ask you questions to determine whether: 1) he was removed vs. returned, 2) he is 245i, 3) hardship exists for an I-601A waiver, among other things.

    Answered . Your question is not very clear. It depends on what you mean by caught 2 times. If you mean that he was deported and he returned illegally again then you may have a very tough journey ahead of you. No one can tell you for sure until you talk with an attorney and give her the paperwork and information.
