    Default held in county jail for agg robbery charges, ins hold

    i'm in texas and we do not have too many immigration lawyers here.

    my brother is held in the county jail with agg robbery charges, possession of unlawful weapon, and possession of controlled substance.

    my brother and i came to the states when we were very young. my brother was 5 and he doesn't even speak our native language. english is practically his first language and texas being his only home he ever known. we have all of our families living in texas. the only immigration lawyer in town is saying he is going to be deportated and there is no way around it.

    i can't bond my brother out because of the border patrol hold. his criminal lawyer is telling him the only way out of this is to go to trial and get a "not guilty" verdict.

    my mother and i are devestated. there are no legal support here for immigrants.

    can you provide me with some information please in regards to this?

    Try the AILA.

    From the facts you provide, it sounds like your brother's lawyer is correct. You should get a second opinion from a Texas lawyer, though, as criminal laws and procedures can vary significantly between states.
