My brother was arrested for DWI in early January. He was a student from China and have OPT status. At that time, he was transferred to immigration jail from county jail . After processing his information, he was released by ICE without being asked for bond. They must realized that he had a valid OPT status and only arrested for DWI, so they released him back then. My brother hired a criminal attorney to handle his DWI case a few months ago. He was required to install a breathlyzer in his car. This morning when he appeared at the court, the judge found that he had one violation (he failed to breath the breathalyzer). Instead of revoking the bond, he was ordered to serve 48 hour in the county jail starting from tomorrow morning. My question: what is the likelihood that he would be transferred to immigration jail by iCE this time? i don't think they would since they had released him last time and they should have a record that he had a valid OPT status. He has a current OPT status right now but expiring in June. He will need to renew through his current employer.

I'm an international undergraduate student. My friends and I

I'm an international undergraduate student. My friends and I were caught with Marijuana possession (small amount) in April 2014. The case is still open as I am trying to prove that the drugs were not mine (no conviction). Long story short, I traveled abroad and need to get a new F-1 to go back. My quest is how much would this history would negatively affect my application? I know that controlled substances are grounds for inadmissibility, so is it very difficult or outright impossible? How can I improve my chances?finally, we were detained then released, does that count as arrest? In other words would I need to disclose this in my application?
