In the movie, The Proposal, how was Margaret not going to get deported for marrying Andrew? I don't know much about immigration and deportation and the bunch so any more insight would help me understand what was happening in the movie would be lovely.

    The premise of the movie revolves around the concept that: A legitimate marriage to a US citizen is grounds for granting US citizenship to the foreign national who is not doing anything illegal. Of course, Sandra Bullock's character (Margaret) is not initially attempting to make a legitimate marriage, and that makes for the drama and comedy in the movie.

By marrying Andrew she can stay in the US because having a husband who is a US citizen, it can give you certain rights to stay in that country.
