Former illegal immigrants: celebrity immigrants who could be deported from the United States

In 2018, world-renowned dog handler Cesar Millan appeared in actress Jada Pinkett Smith's Red Table Talk on Facebook and spoke frankly about his trip to the United States. Global News.

At the age of 21 and with only $ 100 in his pocket, Millan, by his own admission, illegally crossed the United States border to California from Mexico and found his first job: cleaning doghouses and walking dogs.

Eventually, Smith—his longtime girlfriend—helped him by telling him he needed to learn English if he ever wanted to be on television. And he did it. He is now an international star because of his TV show The Dog Whisperer.

“I know I broke border rules,” he told Jada. “But it was for the sake of a dream.”

In 2009, 18 years after illegally entering America, Millan officially became a US citizen.

This dog lover isn't the only celebrity to break the law by coming to the US. There are many examples of already famous people entering the country illegally or violating immigration laws before they were US citizens.

Arnold Schwarzenegger

The bodybuilder, movie star, and former governor of California has a fascinating life, but early in his American career, Schwarzenegger broke immigration rules.

Coming to the United States from his native Austria in the late 1960s, he received a visa allowing him to work only as a bodybuilder. To earn more money, Schwarzenegger got a job as a bricklayer. If it were revealed that he works two jobs, that would be enough to deport the future superstar.

He became a US permanent resident in 1974 and a US citizen in 1983.

The Oscar-nominated actress directly admitted that she was illegally in the United States for a short period of time (she did not disclose when this happened). In an interview with a Spanish magazine, the Mexican actress said that she had overstayed her visa unknowingly.

“I was an illegal immigrant in the United States,” she said. “It was for a short period of time, but it still happened.”

The issue was resolved simply - the actress left the country for a few days and applied for a new visa. Having lived in the country for more than 20 years, in 2013 he received American citizenship.

Did a good-natured Canadian cross the US border illegally? He was actually an illegal immigrant for a time when he first entered the US in 1979, early in his career—his work visa had not yet been obtained, so technically he should not have crossed the border.

As he wrote in his 2010 autobiography, Lucky Man: A Memoir, he was very nervous approaching the border, but made it through without any problems. He currently holds dual Canadian-American citizenship and lives in Manhattan, New York.

Charlize Theron said she was deported from the United States at the age of 19 for being “unpatriotic.” A South African Oscar winner was kicked out of the US after a film she produced and financed about Cuba was deemed unpatriotic and destructive to America, writes One india.

The incident made her realize that she would have to become a US citizen before she could protest against politics, war, or human rights violations on American soil.

“I produced and financed a documentary called East of Havana in Cuba. But he was considered unpatriotic here in America, and I was deported when I was 19,” the actress noted.
