My boyfriend was stopped by the CHP for driving on the carpool lane, he was driving without a drivers license because he is an immigrant, he has a court date coming up, up to my knowledge this is his first ticket and first time appearing in court, will he be deported?
Not likely. However it would be a good idea to meet with an experienced attorney who handles criminal and immigration matters. Yes, criminal because chances are that driving without a license is a crime in your jurisdiction.

If he is here illegally and immigration finds out (police officers and the criminal court arent interested in his immigration status but immigration officers sometimes go to jails) he could be placed in deportation proceedings. Speak with an immigration attorney about the specifics of his case to see if he is eligible for relief from deportation.

Not for driving without a license. However, if he does not have legal immigration status, he can be deported for being out of, or without, status.
You should retain an experienced immigration lawyer to review all the facts and advise you accordingly.
