Domestic Violence is a serious problem for the family, particularly the family that has an undocumented person. Domestic Violence is a crime and is cause for arrest.
For the undocumented who commit the crime, or who are accused of such, it will cause them to put an “ICE HOLD.” This means that the person will not be able to pay a bond in the criminal context and currently be free. They accept bail, but do not release him. They detain the person until “ICE”, the Immigration Police, show up and give them physical custody of the detainee.
When the undocumented person is not the aggressor but the victim of domestic violence, they must report the incident and cooperate to the maximum with the authorities. Not only for fairness, but because by reporting and cooperating with the authorities, you may be eligible to apply for a U Visa, if the police or prosecution certify that you were a victim and that you helped. The U Visa is a complex process, but very good because when it is approved, they give you a work permit and it is a path to residency. Contact the immigration attorney immediately if you are a victim of domestic violence.
