What happens when an illegal immigrant is ordered by his ICE Supervisor to purchase a one way airplane ticket to his country?

Asked over 1 year ago - West Palm Beach, FL

My friend is under ISAP/ICE supervision and he has been told by his ICE supervisor to purchase a one way ticket back to his country. My friend bought the ticket dated for the same day he has to see his supervisor hoping that the time for his flight coincides with the interview (He bought the ticket for 4pm and will see the supervisor at 3pm hoping that the time of the ticket will expire). 10 days ago, his lawyers applied for a stay of removal. Will he be deported or will they wait for his stay of removal be approved or denied?

    Answered . His lawyer knows the specific facts of his case, we don't. If he is not satisfied with his lawyer then he should obtain a second opinion from another experience immigration attorney. However, playing shenanigans with the ticket like you have described is only going to lead to a finding by the ICE officer that he is not acting in good faith and will be counter-productive,
