Asked in Immigration Law for District of Columbia

Q: How much time will he be getting?

Hello, this is an immigration question:

My son was deported from the US on 2012 after serving a 7 year sentence for residential burglary charges and receiving stolen property, He has a daughter back in the US so he entered the US and was arrested by immigration about a week ago. I think that for what I have read he will be charged with illegal reentry after being deported once for aggravated felony charges. How much time will he be getting?

Thanks.
