Deportation. A friend is being held in Arizona to be deported back. Can the deporation be stopped?

New York, NY |

My friend has been here illegally for years and has been working in various jobs. She had a baby five years ago, and the baby is an American Citizen. My friend decided to go back home a couple of years ago and left the baby with her brother. She tried to get back into the country in May and was detained in Arizona and is awaiting deporation. Can something be done to stop the deportation. Her daugher is an American Citzen does this help her case. Do we need to hire an attorney to help her? My understanding is that she declined to speak to anyone in the Consulate. I am writing on behalf of the husband who is also here illegally. Can anything be done done to keep his wife here in t e states?

  1. If this is the first time she is placed in removal proceedings, she will have the opportunity to apply for relief from removal before an Immigration Judge, if she is eligible for any. It is always better to be represented by an experienced immigration attorney, who will determine what relief she is possibly eligible for.
