I agree taht he needs to contact an experienced immigration attorney who can examine the complete criminal adjudication and provide a legal opinion as to its effect on his ability to obtain immigration. The fact an alien in custody has a US Citizen girlfriend has no infludence on his ability to obatin immigration relief. If he has not taken the criminal plea, it would be advisable that the immigration attorney review the plea offer for potentail consequences to his immigration options. It is impossible to provide odds or chances of success when examining AVVO postings.
Putting aside the criminal issues, your boyfriend is subject to
deportation because he is in the country unlawfully. It appears from
these circumstances that he is eligible for release on bond. However,
whether he will be granted bond will depend upon a number of different
factors. You should consult with an experienced immigration attorney
who can review the specific facts of the case and advise you as to the
likelihood of bond being granted and assist you in determining possible
relief from deportation.
He should consult with an attorney who handles removal defense. He might qualify for cancellation of Removal or other releif as well as for an immigration bond. If so, he might be able to apply for work authorization, social secuity and a driver's license 9=(depending on state law where you live). A deportation lawyer will need to review his immigration, family and criminal history to accurately advise him.
