I wish you the best, this situation must be stressful. Do you think that he overstayed for a long time ? Usually it's not difficult to clear the situation if you have money, do you know if he had enough cash with him ?

Why do you believe he is in immigration detention? Did he tell you he was going to the immigration department to turn himself in?

They don't proactively arrest non-homeless overstayers.
