Your question is unclear. Only the government can deport someone.
J Charles Ferrari Eng & Nishimura 213.622.2255 The statement above is general in nature and does not constitute legal advice, as not all the facts are known. You should retain an attorney to review all the facts specific to your case in order to receive advise specific to your case. The statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship. Answers on Avvo can only be general ones, as specific answers would require knowledge of all the facts. As such, they may or may not apply to the question.
I think you are just a bystander in this matter? The law reads that the person signing the affidavit of support must ensure that the alien does not receive public benefits. But that does not mean they are to threaten. In fact they are supposed to help financially. If she applies for help they will give it to her and bill the person signing the affidavit.
If she (you?) are already an LPR, you are entitled to the same rights except right to vote as USC. But if you need help for your pregnancy or new baby, you should look into a government program for children such as CHIP -- that is free. Hope this answer helps you.
An attorney-client relationship is not formed by my responses to questions on Avvo. My responses are not intended to be legal advice and must not be relied upon as legal advice.
