My boyfriend has a friend who has tried to come to the US 2 times now, immigration caught him and sent him back to El Salvador. He is now in Texas in jail, he was caught the 3rd time trying to illegally enter the US. he has been in jail about 3 months, now he thinks he is getting deported again. Is there a way to stop him from being deported? Can he get a bond to be with his family during the removal process? Im just confused as to what his options are if he has any. His brother is trying to help him but he doesnt know where to start either. Are appeals an option after the court deciding to deport you? Advice?! Anything..
Your boyfriend is subject to reinstatement of removal under 241(a)(5), but he can be referred to a "reasonable fear" interview before an asylum officer if he expresses a fear of returning to El Salvador. If he passes the reasonable fear interview, he might be able to get a bond and would proceed to apply for withholding of removal and relief under the Convention Against Torture.

Yes, he will probably be deported.
No, they rarely give a bond in the case of 3 illegal entries.
He doesn't appear to have any options.
Talk to an attorney for confirmation.

There are exception, limited as they might be.....this is not the space to list them all...without counsel to have a private conversation with your boyfriend he will dig himself into a deeper hole....You have not listed anything that fits an exception ..But that does not mean that a lawyer listening to his story would not find a path.
