My mom got detained by ICE

My mother who has lived in this country for over 15 years just got detained in an immigration jail on 9/14/17. 
My mother is the most hardworking person I've ever met, she payed taxes, donated money and just wanted a better life for my brother and me.
After having such a stressful year she decided to take a vacation to Niagara Falls so she went with her boyfriend for her birthday and all of a sudden I recieve a call saying that she is in a jail. I called the jail to find out information and all they said is that her bond is $10,000.
Apparently my mom was on a bus and the bus got stopped randomly which is when they checked for identification and papers.
I ask for any penny to help us get our mom back. Without her we would've never been able to go to college. We need our mom back. She has never done anything illegal and always worked her hardest so she is the last person who deserves this.
