Someone I know has an ICE hold for DUI. She's in jail waiting for a bond...will she be able to get a bond or is it possible she'll get deported. She has two kids that were born in the states. She has I-94 and VISA to legally stay in the US but her passport is almost expired. Please need some advise.
What kind of visa allows her to be in the US with 2 kids?
Talt to an immigration attorney as-soon-as-possible.
The endangering charge has me concerned.

The ICE hold is likely due to unlawful presence, rather than a DUI. Having two US citizen children may help your friend get an immigration bond. She will benefit from the assistance of a knowledgeable criminal attorney. The outcome of the criminal case is often critical to the individual's ability to remain in or return to the United States. I would also urge her to retain an immigration attorney to represent her in removal proceedings should such proceedings be initiated against her.
