  • Deportation Query

    I entered the US over a year ago via the Waiver Visa Pilot Program (WVPP) Met the man of my dreams. Left the US 2 times and re-enterred legally again using the WVPP. Became engaged to the man of my dreams who is unable to marry me immediately due to a nasty divorce/custody battle still locked in the courts by his wife/ex-wife.
    My understanding of the position the INS will take is... 1: As long as I entered the country legally and 2: I marry a USC. Being illegal wont be such a big deal and in most cases I would be allowed to stay once married and adjust my status. My fiancee and I will not be able to marry for perhaps another 6 months. My questions are...
    1: Whilst illegal is it wise to fly within the US given the new security precautions after 9/11
    2: What will happen IF I am caught by the INS and if this happens what should I do. (I am originally from US friendly western country)
    Will I be detained until deportation. How likely is being found and arrested by the INS if I keep a low profile. More concerned about someone dobbing me in.
    3: Is it still true that once we marry I *should* be allowed to remain in the country and eventually work and gain US citizenship.
    Thankyou for your help...

      The protest coincided with anti-war demonstrations from Augusta, Maine, to San Francisco and abroad from Rome and Berlin to Tokyo to San Juan, Puerto Rico, and Mexico City. In Washington and many of the other demonstrations, protesters added complaints about U.S. policy toward the Palestinians.


      "We must not be diverted. In two years we've lost 2 million jobs, unemployment is up, stock market down, poverty up," Jackson told a spirited crowd in Washington. "It's time for a change. It's time to vote on Nov. 5 for hope. We need a regime change in this country."


      Congress has authorized the use of military force to achieve the administration policy of "regime change" in Iraq.


      "If we launch a pre-emptive strike on Iraq we lose all moral authority," Jackson told the chanting, cheering throng spread out on green lawns near the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.


      A sign showed Bush's face at the end of two bright red bombs with the caption: "Drop Bush, not bombs."


      The protest brought out the elderly, young parents with babies in strollers, even a man dressed as Uncle Sam wearing dreadlocks and another Uncle Sam, on stilts, with an elongated Pinocchio nose.


      Protest organizers claimed up to 200,000 people had answered the call to challenge President Bush (news - web sites)'s determination to force out Iraqi President Saddam Hussein (news - web sites). Because the U.S. Park Police no longer issues crowd estimates, the size of the crowd could not be verified. As the march began, participants stretched for at least five city blocks.


      On a nearby street corner, a handful of Iraqi-Americans staged a counterdemonstration. Aziz al-Taee, spokesman for the Iraqi-American Council, said, "I think America is doing just fine. ... We think every day Saddam stays in power, he kills more Iraqis."


      New Englanders ventured out in snow, sleet and rain to join demonstrations in Maine and Vermont. Across the nation a couple thousand showed up at the Colorado capitol in downtown Denver, and demonstrators marched at San Francisco.


      The thousands who gathered in cities across Europe, Asia and beyond also displayed vocal opposition to the U.S. policy toward Iraq and demanded reversal of Bush's Iraq policies.

      In San Francisco, demonstrators stretched about a mile as they marched from the financial district to City Hall, carrying placards that read, "Money for jobs, not for war" and "No blood for oil."

      Young punk rockers with mohawks, aging hippies and middle-aged couples with children all took part, chanting, "One, two, three, four, we don't want your racist war."

      More than 2,000 chanting, drum-beating protesters marched on a home owned by Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld near Taos, N.M., waving placards that read, "Rumsfeld is a War Criminal" and "Teachers Against War." A few protesters held photographs of Iraqi children.

      A Secret Service agent said Rumsfeld was not at home.

      In Berlin, an estimated 8,000 people, brandishing placards that declared "War on the imperialist war," converged on the downtown Alexanderplatz and marched past the German Foreign Ministry. Another 1,500 showed up in Frankfurt, 500 in Hamburg.

      Another 1,500 rain-soaked demonstrators gathered under umbrellas outside the U.S. Embassy in Copenhagen, Denmark. More than 1,000 marched in Stockholm, Sweden.

      In Washington, civil rights activist Al Sharpton addressed Bush, even though the president was at an economic summit in Mexico.

      "It would have been good for you to be here, George, so you could see what America really looks like," Sharpton said. "We are the real America.

      "We are the patriots that believe that America should heal the world and not bring the world to nuclear war over the interests of those business tycoons who put you in the White House."

            1: Whilst illegal is it wise to fly within the US given the new security precautions after 9/11

            It shouldn't be a problem.


            2: What will happen IF I am caught by the INS and if this happens what should I do. (I am originally from US friendly western country)
            Will I be detained until deportation. How likely is being found and arrested by the INS if I keep a low profile. More concerned about someone dobbing me in.


            In case your being illegally comes in the INS attention, you may (I repeat MAY) be placed in deportation proceedings. Usually in these cases (deportation based upon illegal immigration status) they do not detain aliens. In case they will (1% possibilty) they'll most likely give you the opportunity to get out of the jail on bond (minimum $500.)

            3: Is it still true that once we marry I *should* be allowed to remain in the country and eventually work and gain US citizenship.

            Yes, definitely.
