She's been here for over 2 years. Will we get in trouble if we get married and don't apply for adjustment of status right away?
If she is picked up she would likely be released under the curent guidelines for prosecutorial dsicretion but why take the chance, apply for her permnent residency so she can obtian a work card, driver's license and otherwise have a legal existence in the U.S. What if you were sent overseas? wouldn't you worry about her?
