    Answered . You likely won't run into trouble - but why run the risk? Have the adult U.S. citizen be fully responsible for the bond. Also, keep in mind that you may be eligible for deferred action for childhood arrivals (DACA), which would save you from deportation if you are approved. You should consult an immigration attorney who could advise you of your rights.

    Answered . As long as you have legal status and there is no warrant for you, you are in no danger of being detained. however, as a juvenile you may not be allowed in the jail and/or allowed to post the bond without an adult.

    Second, if this person has an immigration hold, you are wasting your ime and money in posting bond. She will not be released. After a final disposition is entered in the criminal case she will be transferred to federal immigration custody for removal proceedings.

    I suggest you consult with an experienced immigration attorney to determine what needs to be done.
