My boyfriend got sentenced 180 days in county jail for a felony, when I called to find out his release day they didnt have one because he has a immgration hold.This is the first time he has a hold for immgration. What are the chance that they he can get deported or get bond? And when will his release day be?
If he already has a hold, most likely once his sentence is complete in the state system he will be transferred to ICE and his removal proceeding will be continued. Removal proceedings are when the US Government wants to send him to his home country (what used to be called deportation). As for a bond, his eligibility will depend on his record and the discretion of the immigration officers and judge. His release from jail day (and then turn over to ICE day) will depend on the state system. Contact counsel in the County and State where he is serving his sentence, or the jail itself, in order to try to determine the release day.

That is a complex question. In depends on whether he was here legally in the first place. If he was not here legally then the greater the chance of him being deported. Secondly it also depends on the crime which he plead to.
Contact an immigration attorney ASAP if you can afford one.
