The couple’s 12-year-old daughter, a U.S. citizen, is in Phoenix without parents.
it's not automatic, and for people who entered illegally the law makes it a huge pain in the ass to get a green card even after marrying a citizen. Basically afaict you need to go back to a consulate in your home country for processing, and then you'll face a 3-10 year ban on reentry to the US unless the US government grants you a waiver. It should go without saying that the Trump admin isn't too keen on giving out waivers.
Yeah like skullmuffins said, it's a very complex system. My sisters were able to waive due to being DREAMers and even then they still had to go through extensive filing, fees, and wait times. One of my sisters even had her green card lost for 3 months and the office forgot to tell her until she called in after she felt it was too long. ICE is pretty dog shit cuz they prioritize catching someone and immediately sending them to a center regardless of who exactly they are, whether they were doing something criminal or not, or even checking said person's credentials. You're here illegally they'll take you even if you are a person with a life here and even possibly going through proper proceedings.
He would've had to go back to Mexico for some time in order to get his papers in order. Since his wife was on duty, I imagine they pushed that off. And then she passed.
Correct.it's not automatic, and for people who entered illegally the law makes it a huge pain in the ass to get a green card even after marrying a citizen.

It definitely would not be the first time someone here legally was deported even if all his stuff is in order. Our immigration court system is completely fucked up too and has deported American citizens in the past. Not just far too few judges, but iirc, the normal right to counsel doesn't really apply (for some obviously utterly bullshit reason).
At least now if you join the military you get fast tracked citizenship, in my experience pretty much all non-citizens that joined the military were citizens by the time boot camp ended.
Genuine couples are being prevented from getting married and are subjected to “insulting” and “gruelling” checks as part of a government crackdown on sham marriages, a Guardian investigation has found.
Couples and lawyers described wedding ceremonies being interrupted so that the Home Office could question people about their sex lives, an official finding a nude picture on a person’s phone and showing it to others in the room, and dawn raids carried out to check if couples were sharing a bed.
In one case, a couple were told their relationship could not be genuine because they were wearing pyjamas in bed. In others, people have been detained for months after being wrongly accused of entering into a sham marriage.
Our immigration system is a national shame, and it's the way it is for the same reason as the US one: politicians chasing the racist vote.Horrible but here in the UK it's no better.
I almost made a thread about this the other day, I cannot tell you how angry I got reading that story. Its things like this that make me laugh and have to correct people when they express even a modicum of sympathy for Theresa May, this is all the hostile environment that cold hearted witch was so proud to create. Fuck her and fuck the Tories.Horrible but here in the UK it's no better.
It blows my mind that someone can serve in the armed forces without being a citizen. Do they not ask for a SIN? Don't they do SOME kind of background check when you enlist?
What the fuck? I bet the court summons was purposefully sent to the wrong address as well.Hernandez said he filed a motion to reopen Gonzalez Carranza's deportation case. The motion triggered an automatic stay of removal, but ICE deported him anyway, Hernandez said.
Wang also said it Gonzalez Carranza should not have been deported if there was a stay of removal. She said, however, it is "not uncommon" for ICE to violate stays of removal.
