Can my husband get his citizenship after being deported and coming back to the US after 2 yrs.

Harlingen, TX |

My husband got deported 2 yrs ago and he is going to have a year back in the US. We are also going to have a baby. I am a US Citizen But he has been deported twice. He says he just signed some papers but he didn't know how long he was deported. When we were trying to come back i had his birth certificate when i crossed so immigration pulled me in, they wrote down his name on the computer but they said they didn't have any record on him. I want to know if their is a possibility to get his citizenship with him being over here in the US. I don't want to go back to mexico help plz with some answers.

  2. tough my ass. it is impossible! there is a permanent bar forever for re entry after deportation and a separate permannet bar if he was removed from the usa and re entered the usa without permission. after ten years you might be able to get a waiver of the second bar but not the first one. go see jodi goodwin of harlingen, one of the best.
