Father is a naturalized US citizen. Mother is LPR. Their two oldest boys, 16 and 18 years old, were born and raised in Honduras (they were raised by grandparents). Father and mother obtained their US status after the boys were born.
The two boys illegally crossed border into Texas in December 2007 and picked up by federal officers. The boys are Honduras citizens, but they also have birth certificates/passport from Nicaragua because their father was born there.
If they will be subject to removal proceedings, what would be the best course of action to take? Is there any way to argue that the boys obtained derivative citizenship or LPR status? Because of the political unrest in Honduras, the parents of course do not want their boys to go back there. Is there any way to apply for a status with them remaining in the US?
Thank you very much.
