My friend is in a situation where she is being stalked by an ex boyfriend from England. He has already been arrested three times in the past week, first time for assualt and battery(he broke two of her ribs), second time for assualt and violation of restraining order. third time he was arrested for violation of restraining order plus charges of unlawful entry and holding her against her will(he followed her home one night and forced his way into her apartment held her there all day before he just walked out saying "Ill be back").
We were told my INS after the second arrest that he was going to be deported. This guy also happens to be a lawyer so we are at a slight disadvantage when it comes to the legality of the situation. Now with the third arrest what are our steps from here to keep her safe from this lunatic? Another call to INS? Should we be contacting a higher level of law enforcment than the local sheriffs department?
I know there is a law that when illegal immigrants are convicted of a misdemenor it can be elevated immediately to a felony and they may deported. is there a law like this that exists for people that are visiting the US legally?
