Q: 

My boyfriend is in jail with an immigration hold. Will he be deported?

A:  It''s too soon to tell. If he has no other convictions, then you''ll have to wait and see what happens with the assault and battery charge. If he''s convicted of it, there might be a prison sentence, or just a fine or probation. Once the police, the court and the prison are done with him, ICE will evaluate the available data to decide what to do with him. If ICE believes that he''s deportable based upon his conviction(s), they''ll issue a Notice to Appear for him to appear before an immigration Judge. The final decision in his case will be made by the immigration Judge. Obviously, there will be a lot to consider, and we do not have full data at this point. All we know right now is that he''s in trouble with the cops...

Q: 

Are immigration holds removed for detainees?

A:  immigration holds are started by the use of form I-247, immigration Detainer—Notice of Action. There is a portion of the form used for lifting the detainer, but I doubt that your spouse will benefit from it. To answer your question, yes, a detainer can be removed. As I said, his chances are slim, especially if they feel he is likely to abscond. Trafficking in controlled substances is a very serious offense. If he doesn''t have a green card (you didn''t mention one), there is no reason why ICE or the police would like to see him released. If he is an illegal he will be deported It is highly doubtful. An immigration hold can remain in effect past his trial and into his...

Impact of immigration holds and the Criminal Justice System

A:  Warning to Non-Citizens: “We don’t care what you are charged or arrested for, if you engage in any type of criminal activity, even if it is as simple as a jaywalking violation, we will put an immigration hold on your case until your case is resolved (closed) in criminal court.” – Officer R. R., immigration and Customs Enforcement, Department of Homeland Security.

When arrested, in many cases, the

Q: 

immigration hold on robbery 2nd degree, how can he avoid deportation?

A:  Contact an immigration lawyer immediately. The situation may be very dire in that his information is in the system and so if anyone like the fools at the top wants to get him deported it will be very easy. A lawyer is essential to get ASAP.

I think you should consult with an immigration attorney as soon as you can. I hope they deport him ASAP! Omg, send his butt home....

Q: 

Is it legal for a non-black African immigrant holding a green card or citizenship in the US to claim African-American ethnicity when applying to colleges. What if said person has an African ancestor?

A:  Many people of mixed ancestry are regarded as African-American, for example President Barack Obama, who is half African and half European in ancestry. I am not sure what you mean by describing yourself as a non-black African immigrant; what is your ethnicity? The continent of Africa includes many different ethnicities, including Dutch immigrants in South Africa, Indian immigrants in Kenya, Arabs in the north, etc. In terms of having an African ancestor, chances are everyone has an African ancestor, if we go back far enough, given that the human race seems to have originated in Africa. But what ethnicity do you actually belong to? I would suggest that your college application should be honest....
