Why bother filing the I-130 now when it gets them nothing but put on ICE's radar.

Wait until you are a US citizen to file the I-130.  

That was my fear (after someone on vj pointed this out to me) and that's why I waited until I was a USC. Luckily in my case everything worked out.

Odds of adverse action by ICE is still low. Many spouses of LPR go through provisional waiver path without issues.

True, but in this immigration process, especially if the authorities have something to jump on, it's far better to be safe than sorry.  I wouldn't take this chance.

For both paths, the "authorities" would at some point know that OP has an out-of-status spouse while simultaneously knowing that OP is yet to naturalize. E.g. when filing N-400, OP would list the spouse and mention the lack of status.

Well, if you find a good lawyer, discuss it all with him/her.

Let us know if you have enough advice to proceed, and we can close this discussion for you.  It is completely your choice.

Deportation is unusual in normal times, you usually have to do something to come to their attention, and I thought Biden had put a block on deportations anyway, well for the time being.
