It seems that the authorities (DHS and other agencies) will work with students if they help in the criminal investigations. This might be a way for many students to get a chance to stay and avoid criminal prosecutions. This is not confirmed information and we have not received any information from ICE or any other department on the matter. In case you are arrested, you will need to find an attorney in your state to defend you. However, if the above is true, you need to do the following:
1. Before you make any deal with the DHS, please talk to an attorney and be represented by an attorney. In case, you are criminally charged, you will need to be represented by a criminal attorney familiar with immigration;
2. Please do not make any false statement(s) to obtain any kind of deal; and
3. Keep good records for yourself of what has been happening with TVU including emails, invoices, receipts, transcripts, transfer letters, etc
We are awaiting for a guidance memo or some sort of statement from the government regarding the matter, we will update you as we get more information.
