I'm so sorry about your situation. So, generally, if you are concerned about the safety of your child, I would strongly recommend that you file for a child custody order with a local court. Usually, the family court in your county is going to have the forms available for this. You should explain that he has anger issues and you're concerned the child may be kidnapped.

The judge may enter an order that temporarily would prohibit him from taking the child and call a hearing for a later date to see what needs to be done. Many times, they will order the two of you to mediation to work out the issues, but if there is enough information to suggest that you should have custody, then they'll give custody to you. Nonetheless, if you go to mediation, then a mediator will work with the both of you to come up with an agreement. If there are issues of abuse, then the court is going to assign a guardian to look out for the child and they will interview all parties involved and make their recommendation. Coupled with the mediator's report and the guardian's report, the court will make a decision.

You may also be able to get a restraining order in the meantime which would prohibit him from taking the child.

His immigration status will not matter.
