Immigration question........Will my husband be deported?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Alexandria, VA

y husband is in deportation preceedings. before I got married he divorced his previous wife and immigration filed it as a sham marriage. they also denied my petition for him but we appealed it awhile ago. We have two children together and he has been abusive and been using someone else's SSN to work. I want to leave him because in the past he has threatened to kill me multiple times. I just want to know would he get deported because he is abusive and commiting fraud

Additional information

I am currently separated from him. He was using my SSN to try to get a car loan and I reported it to immigration because I told him not to as he messed up my credit enough already!
