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.

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.
Immigration detention is a frightening prospect for people who are forced into the system. Unfortunately, this is something that seems to be very prevalent in this country now.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Considering how many immigrants are being arrested and detained around the world right now -- and the fact that many of them have been unlawfully detained -- it's frightening to think how little oversight there is over the facilities where detained immigrants are housed. In some parts of the world, there is absolutely no oversight of the living conditions in these centers.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents arrested 150 people in Los Angeles over several days in September. The massive immigration raid included the apprehension of one man who had been convicted of attempted murder and one woman who had been charged with seven drunk driving offenses.
