My aunty got arrested and kept in immigration jail in after

Hi my aunty got arrested and kept in immigration jail in Virginia after she asked a lawyer to file a political asylum. Her lawyer has no idea why is she even arrested because she is going through legal process to apply. After the incident happen, she spoke to an immigration officer in jail, and she rejected deportation. This is the second time she is applying for political asylum, the first time she got rejected by the judge. What's the process to bail her out of the jail and how long does it take. If we were to send her back to her country, we would like to get her out of jail first. How can we achieve that? Your help is appreciated

I have a student visa but I stopped going to school last

Hello my name is***** have a student visa but I stopped going to school last November because I couldn't afford to pay my next school term, so basically I've been at the country illegally for 3 months now but I had been on a student visa for more than 3 years. I'm originally from Venezuea, when I was in high school I was always being harrased for the way I acted because I'm gay and in my country this is a big taboo for most people. In my country LGBT get burned for being themselves. I wonder if I have a chance to apply for political asylum due to fear of future persecution. Thank you appreciate your help

My girlfriend is Chinese, overstayed her tourist visa, now

My girlfriend is Chinese, overstayed her tourist visa, now has political asylum pending. She has SS# ***** social security card. So she is legal and can stay till asylum resolves. Question - if we got married would that hurt her. The issue is I am 51, been married 4 times. She is 37 married once (actually twice, but to the same man). she is married now, and they filed asylum together as a family. The fear is that a marriage to me would not appear legit (even though it is and we can prove it in the traditional ways) but my 4 prior marriages dont help. Any thoughts?
