(IL)My boyfriend is a Mexican illegal (crossed w/o inspection) living in the states for 12 years. He was deported once 10 years ago and immediately came back and has had no record since. My question is: because of this deportation he would surely face the 10 year ban if he went back to Mexico? He is under the impression that if we marry in Mexico I could bring him back on a spouse visa. I have heard that this takes quite sometime. We will be consulting with an immigration lawyer shortly but I was hoping to get some advice from someone who has actually gone through this.
Thank you for all of your help.
