Default 2nd Illegal Re-Entry

My husband just got out of federal prison last month and deported to Mexico. We have 5 kids and he made the decision to come back and was caught by the border in McAllen TX. This is going to be his 2 reentry. Do you think he has a chance on just getting deported instead of doing more time?

This might be the worst timing ever now that AG Sessions says he will prosecute every illegal entry case. Even before that, second illegal entry cases after deportation usually resulted in a 5 year federal prison sentence, so my opinion is that your husband is going to face more time in the bop.

Concur that you (and he) need to expect a sizable term of incarceration. The last one I had like that got a double-digit sentence (to go along with the revocation of the State period of supervision). The deportation is not a suggestion. It is the government saying 'be gone.' They get a little miffed when a convicted felon decides to commit yet another felony...

I know this post is old but just in case your still around.



I know it's expensive but why couldn't you both just go through the legal channels of obtaining a marital green card. The process is lengthy and it does cost alot and you do have to produce the proper legal paperwork and forms etc but at least he wouldn't be locked up for illegally crossing the boarder. And now that he's been incarcerated he may never be allowed to apply.
