Back in August, Hernandez was sentenced to three years probation for making a terroristic threat. After her sentencing, she was taken back into federal custody. 

She was in the country protected under the DACA program, but her status was revoked after committing a crime.

At a hearing in August, her attorney told the judge she intended to apply for asylum in the U.S.
