I originally came here seeking information about a ladies options that's been here illegally for years... I'd like to ask a couple of things. How much does it cost money wise and time wise for someone to gain entry to the US legally from Mexico? What is the criteria? On the other hand how much does it cost money wise and time wise for someone to stay here legally after illegally crossing the border say twenty or thirty years ago. Does the fact that they initially broke the law to enter come into play?
