Plan for possible immigration detention before it happens

Being detained by immigration is a difficult place to be. We've discussed how you might need a bond to be released from custody. The fact that you might be able to secure a release might not make you feel any better. We know that this is a challenging position for you to be in. Hopefully, you have your loved here to help you through this.

Release from immigration detention often requires a bond

Immigration detention is a serious matter that must be treated swiftly and with some measure of skill. When a person is being held on an immigration detainer, you need to find out what you can do about it. One of the top priorities will be getting the person out of jail. In most cases, this requires you to post a bond.

Arrests can trigger immigration actions for some individuals

One fear of people who are in the United States without proper documentation is being arrested. There is a possibility that an arrest can trigger deportation in some cases. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) uses the Secure Communities program to find inmates who are eligible for deportation. Not all jails participate in this program, so there is a chance that being arrested might not do anything at all to a person who doesn't have documentation.

Immigration detention comes with important decisions

Having to deal with immigration officials can be a challenging situation. Not only do you need to know applicable immigration laws, but you may also have to deal with a language barrier. These can make everything more complicated. When you have a loved one who is in this position, you need to find out how you can help them. We are here to work with you to determine what options are present in your loved one's case.

Immigration detention can be a frightening event for some people

Almost daily, you can read the news and hear about someone who is being detained because of alleged issues with their immigration status. This is a difficult event for these individuals because it pulls them away from their family members and can leave them in harsh conditions. We understand that you don't want to think about your loved one being locked away due to a problem with documentation. We are here to help detained immigrants learn about their options and set a plan in place to address the issues.

Rapper's plight illustrates dangers of overstaying a visa

In the news recently, rapper 21 Savage was arrested and marked for possible deportation. It is noted that he has been in this country without proper documentation for many years since his visa expired. This case has brought an important issue to light – not everyone without proper immigration status came here illegally. Some did come the correct way --- but didn't leave the country when they technically should have. Far from living furtive lives in order to evade detection, they've lived rather openly in the past when immigration policies weren't as fierce.

Immigration detention can be a frightening experience

Being detained because you are an immigrant who might not have appropriate documentation is troublesome. The entire process can be rather scary, but you need to know that you do have specific rights in these cases. We are here to help you when you need it the most.

Alternatives to immigrant detention are possible

Immigration is a hot topic in the news right now. Many people don't realize that the issue of undocumented immigrants in this country isn't as serious as what some are trying to make it seem. In fact, the number of undocumented is currently estimated to be the lowest it has been in 12 years. As of 2016, there are an estimated 10.7 million undocumented immigrants, which is much lower than the 12.2 million estimated in 2007.

Is there anywhere ICE won't arrest me?

If you're an undocumented immigrant in the United States, you're probably concerned about your immigration status and whether you'll be able to stay in the country. You may even be concerned that if U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents stop you, that you could be arrested, sent to a detention center and later deported. If you're facing a situation like this, your concerns are well-founded.
