Pearland, TX asked in Immigration Law and Child Custody for Texas

Q: Hi, I'm from Canada and my residency card expired in 2015.

I recently got pregnant to my 3yr relationship American Citizen boyfriend and I ended up having to birth our child in the United states. They gave me til July 3rd but I had my baby June 29th and its now December. Yes I stayed longer than I'm supposed to but it wasn't supposed to be like that.

I'm planning on renewing my residency in January & by that time it would be a year that I've been here.

Would I be denied and or deported ? If so, could I bring my son with because he'd be a automatic Canadian citizen because I am?
