Someone very close to me has been living here undocumented for some time now. They came here when they were still a adolescent, went through their entire high school years in this country successfully receiving their diploma. They have paid all of their taxes, speak English fluently, have no criminal record whatsoever, and have several witnesses to attest to their character. They were recently picked up by immigration while traveling. This was their first encounter with them, and they are now in an ICE detention center. They have not spoken to them at the compound since they arrived. What is the best path to see if they can legally stay in this country, and do you think they have a chance of being bonded?
What advice can you offer me?
