Since you obtained the green card as your wife's beneficiary, your legal status depends upon her having had legal status at the time that she filed for you. Unfortunately your reporting your wife could involve your green card. If your daughter is born in the US, she is a citizen by birth and is allowed to remain even if you and your wife ultimately have to leave the US.

Immigration
Regardless of your situation, U.S. immigration law can be confusing. Are you seeking to come to the United States for pleasure, business or to attend school? Do you want to stay here just temporarily, for a longer period of time or live here permanently? Are you a permanent resident or seeking citizenship? If you want to come to the United States, immigration lawyers can help determine your eligibility for various types of visas and guide you through the application process. If you've already arrived in the United States, an immigration attorney can determine whether you're eligible for permanent residency and if you can bring family members into the country to live with you. Immigration law firms can also work with individuals who have entered the country illegally, overstayed their visas or violated the conditions of their visas and are facing removal or deportation proceedings.
