If I’m a deported US citizen and am trying to get into federal court pro se from the country I was removed to, where does jurisdiction rest to have a motion submitted?

Can I have a friend file it in any federal district court?

From what you have written, the federal court district for the filing of the motion that you wish to have filed would be in the federal court district where you last resided before being deported. I suggest that you consult with an immigration specialist to assist you which can be found on attorneypages.com in the locality where you last resided in this country.
