Asked over 1 year ago - Fort Myers, FL

My husband crossed into the US in 2000, which made him 17 at the time. he was caught in texas and an immigration judge order removal,he was sent back to Honduras. He crossed back over, and remained here until may 2012 when he was deported again. then in November he tried to enter through Arizona and caught again, and was sent back. What is his chances of becoming legal, and since he was 17 at the time, the first deportation doesn't count right?

    Answered . Re-entry after deportation is a crime for which he can be charged criminally under Federal statute 8 USC 1326. If convicted he can be sentenced to two years in prison. The sentence can be more severe if he was deported due to certain criminal offenses.
