Unhappy In USA husband being deported to Australia

Hi,
My husband has been ordered deported from the USA to Australia and will be gone within the next 3 weeks. He has been detained since 11/12. We have been married for 7 years and he has led in the USA for 47 years. We have a 6 year old daughter and neither of us wants to leave. I am only beginning to accept that he will be gone and starting to research my options for joining him. I am very nervous and really do not want to go anywhere, but I can't have my daughter grow up without her dad.

Tony never became a citizen, he is a Permanent Resident. He is a recovering addict and 10 years ago before we met, he got arrested for a drug charge. He did not serve any jail time and was given a program by the Connecticut court. He has been clean and sober ever since. In the USA, as far as immigration law goes, anything to do with controlled substances is considered an "aggravated felony". At this point, our government has deported record numbers of people--many like my husband have been in trouble a long time ago and have changed their lives. Unfortunately, immigration law does not consider rehabilitation at all. He is a high priority for deportation even having 2 US citizen children, a US citizen wife and his parents have also become citizens, he has held the same job since 1986, we own a home, and pay taxes. We have been fighting it for 9 months and have no more options. It is very upsetting to me considering the "comprehensive immigration reform" that is supposed to be happening here. All it really entails is Amnesty for people who have snuck in. People like Tony are given no consideration.

And please, I would appreciate not being bashed about this. It has been hard enough for our family. I understand that my husband made a mistake, but he has changed and if they were going to deport him, they should have done it 10 years ago.

I have not consulted a lawyer for our family to move. We had an immigration attorney in the USA for his case, but after 9 months he was deported to Australia last week. Now I have to figure out how to get the rest of us there.

I am actually getting more and more nervous as I read this site. I have some medical issues (minor) I had a total hysterectomy and I take hormone replacement therapy every day. Through all of my husbands problems, I started taking an antidepressant and anti anxiety meds. We are legally married in the US and have lived together for the past 10 years. Even applying for a visa sounds incredibly expensive and the cost of living very high. Tony has been there for 2 weeks and is working and living with family, but I don't know how this is going to ever work.

We dont bash people here hun were here to listen and to help you no one will judge any one here its not our job to do that. Its very hard for you and your family right now especially your daughter being in the middle. All the members here will help you were they can and give you advice on what they know. No one ever took a bashing here.
