    Answered . Whether or not there is anything that can be done to keep your brother in law from being deported again is an issue that needs to be discussed with an experienced immigration attorney prior to his release from custody. Although any of us in the criminal defense arena can certainly speculate what his options are, his situation is not one that should be left to speculation. Make contact with an immigration attorney immediately!
