There won't be mass deportations. There won't be mass deportations. There won't be mass deportations. Over and over again USCIS has said that there will not be mass deportations on November 29, 2011, the day federal immigration is more fully implemented.
Yet today's paper reads, "ANYONE without status, even though they are parents of U.S. citizens, who accumulate unlawful presence in the CNMI, faces the prospect of being barred from reentering the United States as mandated by the federal immigration laws."
So USCIS won't deport you, but if you don't leave by next month, you'll be barred from reentering? That may not be deportation per se, but the result is the same.
