Will having U.S. citizen children prevent deportation of undocumented immigrant?
Children might be a factor that's weighed if deportation (removal) proceedings are begun.
My husband and I came to the U.S. from Mexico illegally, by crossing the border, and we have been living here for five years. We both work doing housekeeping, gardening, and other temporary jobs. We do not feel ready to start a family right now, but our friends tell us over and over that if we have a baby, it will be a U.S. citizen, and so immigration will not deport us. Is that true?
