My parents were given a final order of deportation or removal back in 1996 for overstaying a tourist visa. They were finally deported in April 2006. INS went to their house and deported them at the gov's expense. I have my citizenship interview on July 25, 2008 so I'm hoping to be sworn in sometime this year.
My questions are how long are they banned from the US and from what date does it begin counting? Will my petition for them waive the ban or are they still subject to it? I am 25 years old and married to a US citizen.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
