While many noncitizens present without lawful status are able to travel throughout the U.S. without being detected or taken into custody, I would still warn that there is always risk. You should understand that the risk of being taken into custody and or deported are real risks. There have been cases where noncitizens were questioned about immigration status on buses like Greyhound buses and on trains. Some of these cases resulted in the detention and or deportation of noncitizens. The child may fly with no problems whatsoever but he always faces some level of risk in travel.
