Depends on the charges - people aren't always let out on bail, especially if there are multiple charges and they think that the person is a potential flight risk. Also is he a US citizen? Just because you are married, doesn't automatically grant him citizenship status, there is paperwork that has to be filed, and it takes a while. So if there is an possibility that his visa or citizenship status is questionable, they will look into that before letting him out.

No... just being married doesn't grant him anything. His visa needs to be valid until he is granted green card status. At this point it is very possible that he will be deported. You should probably get a lawyer who is well versed in Immigration Law to help you.

This is the page on how to get a green card as well: http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/menuitem.eb1d4c2a3e5b9ac89243c6a7543f6d1a/?vgnextoid=9c8aa6c515083210VgnVCM100000082ca60aRCRD&vgnextchannel=9c8aa6c515083210VgnVCM100000082ca60aRCRD

But he may have to go back to his original country until the process is completed, unless he can get his visa renewed in the meantime.

but he did not do anything bad

Doesn't matter - if his visa has expired, he's in the country illegally. Also, if he was driving without a license that is also illegal (plus you said warrants, which indicate that there is more than one charge pending). He may actually find it really hard to get his green card if he is convicted of anything, so you need to get a lawyer to help you get this resolved.

Gonna have to wait till court...normally you'll get your options there. A lot of variables can't tell you for sure. Good Luck! I don't miss the prowess!

If he had warrants & was driving without a license, he did something bad!!
Come on!
It's people like that that hurt people like me. Like getting my car hit by an unlicensed, uninsured driver & now I have to pay the deductible!
I have no sympathy!
There's no such thing as almost legal as far as citizenship goes & getting married does not change that!
I know dozens of people that are here legally yet their spouses are not because they can't come here legally!
I wish I knew what's wrong with the way people think!
He's breaking the law by being here then he breaks the law by driving without a license & he had warrants for God knows what!! What do you mean he didn't do anything bad?? It's all bad!
Oh & his criminal record may keep him from ever being a citizen! Especially his being here illegally! He will & should be deported!
What about all those people that did what they were supposed to to become citizens? Most of them spent years & thousands of dollars just to become citizens!
How do you think they feel when people like you & your husband feel entitled?
Do you even care how others feel or how others might be hurt by his illegal activity?

My thoughts exactly. They want him to have his rights, oh wait, he has no rights, you have to be a citizen to have those! More than likely he is bondable but with an immigration hold he isn't going anywhere!
