The marijuana sales charge certainly complicates things. Some states, like California, have an Office of Immigration Assistance -- yours may, too. But because there's a charge involved you'll probably have to get an immigration lawyer to see if there's way you can stay. There have been recent changes and movements to allow non-citizen parents to stay in the US if their children are citizens, but the charge may make those programs unavailable to you. If you want to post your state I'll try to find out what help is available in your area. Good luck!

trust me on this one, your children will be far better off in the long run if you are not around.  just because the current law says children/people born in the U.S. are citizens (which I believe is stupid), doesn't mean the law should be changed or ignored because of people like you, who break the law, cut-in-line of others trying to become citizens, and drain the systems.  oh ... you've been here 11 years now?  do you believe that makes it okay for you to stay?  i do feel sorry for your plight. I feel really sorry for your kids; and the U.S.
