Deportation Defense: Detained By ICE?

When you are arrested and found to be in the United States illegally, you may be detained by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). If you have been detained by ICE, it is imperative that you take action to secure legal representation and protect your future. You are in immediate danger of being deported and separated from your family, friends, and life in America.

ICE aims to uphold homeland security by enforcing federal laws regarding immigration, border control, customs, and trade. If the ICE determines you are not a lawful permanent resident of the United States, they have the right to commence removal proceedings to force your return to your native country. You have rights in this situation too. We at The Law Alliance can anticipate court proceedings and prepare a defense on your behalf and try to prevent you being deported. This is why it is extremely important to enlist the services of an immigration lawyer who can evaluate your situation and stay by your side throughout the legal process.

It is generally NOT true that an immigrant who has been detained by ICE will automatically be deported. A detainee will be given an opportunity to request bond hearing where they it will be determined they are eligible for bond. At these hearings, a judge will make a decision based on several factors, including the detainee's danger to the community or to travel in the U.S., their employment history, their ability to pay the bond, their involvement in community groups, their previous immigration history, and more.
