Husband is a Mexican citizen, but has been here since he was 4 years old on student and work permits, was in the US military, he was originally jailed for his first domestic violence offense, had his hearing, and was transportated to an ICE facility.
Most likely, they will issue him a Notice to Appear, which starts the deportation proceedings. He will then have to appear before an Immigration Judge where he can apply for relief from removal if he qualifies. Because of recent domestic violence conviction, ICE and the Immigration Judge may find that he is a "danger to the community" and deny bond. In which case, your husband would have to stay in detention while pursuing relief from removal. I advise you to get a good immigration attorney who can help you navigate his case if he is placed in removal proceedings.
