Deportation of Young People over 18

Kimberly Pineda Chavez, a 19-year-old high school student, living in Atlanta, is facing deportation to Honduras. Immigration rights activists report that this move could prove dangerous to the teen. Kimberly and her family moved to the US in 2014 after receiving threats and harassment from police at home. The police threatened to, “kidnap and rape Kimberly and her siblings.” The activists are concerned because she will be separated from her family. They also believe she deserves to stay because she was attending high school and does not pose a threat to the national security. In addition, they have launched an online campaign calling on ICE officials to stop the deportation of the young lady and set her free.

Look, the US Immigration policy is that although she is not a "threat to national security", she is by law, deportable or removable ( the more diplomatic word for deportation). 

Although she is young, according to regulations, she is not a minor because she is over 18. And by law, she is an adult. So the fact that she will be disrupted from her life or even removed from her family, is not a consideration for Immigration.

Just telling it like it is. If you are in this situation, please don't expect USCIS to take into account things that are discretionary in nature. They have to decide by the regulations. If she does not have a way to become legal either through family or otherwise, she will be removable or deportable.
