You would have to contact an attorney handling traffic matters to be advised on your traffic question. If you are here illegally you are subject to referral to ICE for removal at any time. You should for sure contact an immigration attorney if that happens to advise you on what if any rights you may have any eligibility for voluntary departure, etc.

A person can be arrested for driving without a license and in some states, the statute that covers that offense also covers revoked/suspended licenses. The person may be deported if they are transferred into immigration custody and have no way of staying in the U.S. The details posted are insufficient to determine whether this person has a way of staying. It doesn't look good but a real consult with an attorney is necessary in this situation.
