Reasons Why ICE Can Hold an Alien without an Immigration Bail Bond

Home » Immigration Help & Resources » Reasons Why ICE Can Hold an Alien without an Immigration Bail Bond

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is a department within the government, whose primary focus is enforce border patrol, customs, trade and immigration, to promote homeland security and public safety.

When an illegal alien is taken into ICE’s custody, a bond will be determined; if granted, an amount for the bond will be set. An immigration bail bond is a certain amount of money that you pay the government, in order to be released while you continue through legal proceedings. As long as you attend all of your scheduled immigration court hearings, your payment will be returned; however, if you are absent at any scheduled hearings, you will lose your immigration bail bond money.

If the alien is eligible for an immigration bail bond, also known as ICE Form I-352, one of four bail bonds will be given:

  1. Delivery Immigration Bail Bond
  2. Public Safety Immigration Bond
  3. Voluntary Departure Immigration Bond
  4. Order of Supervision Immigration Bail Bond

There are instances where an immigration judge will rule against the alien, saying that they do not meet the qualifications for release, and an immigration bail bond will not be allowed. This happens when an immigrant has been released from criminal custody. Any immigrant that has been arrested for a criminal offense is required to be held by ICE during the legal proceedings, regardless of immigration status and personal circumstances.

The alien must meet the following conditions to be held by ICE without bond:

  1. The alien was released from criminal custody after October 8, 1988; and
  2. The criminal custody the alien was release from is one mandatory detention grounds.

Mandatory Detention Grounds

The following are a list of criminal grounds of inadmissibility – meaning an actual conviction is not required:

  1. A crime involving moral turpitude
  2. Multiple convictions that would result in five+ years in prison
  3. A prostitution-related offense
  4. A controlled-substance offense
  5. Terrorist activity
  6. Human trafficking
  7. Money laundering

The following is a list of deportable criminal convictions:

  1. A crime involving moral turpitude that resulted in a year+ sentence
  2. Two or more crimes involving moral turpitude
  3. A firearms offense
  4. An aggravated felony
  5. Drug abuse or addition
  6. Espionage, sabotage or treason

If you or a loved one is currently being detained by ICE without a bond and you believe that you are eligible for an immigration bail bond, petition for a “Joseph Hearing”. During this hearing, an immigration judge will review your case and determine if you are eligible for detention without bail and can consider you for a bond.

US immigration bonds were absolutely the best they were super professional. When I was down and out when my husband was detained by immigration they were very caring , knowledgeable, and patient. I called them a thousand times and they were very empathic and helpful everytime I called. they reassures me that everything would be fine, and that they would help me my husband, and my children be reunited again.

Jeremy Wolf and his agency have been a terrific resource for me as I delve into this foreign world of bonding a friend out of jail so he and his wife can work on his case on the "outside." Jeremy has been unfailingly polite and informative and his video regarding how to complete the necessary forms was a valuable tool too. The entire process was quick and relatively easy. I especially appreciated not having to deal with a jaded, impatient, figure--it-out-yourself kind of person when I was treading in really unfamiliar territory. My questions were always answered quickly and efficiently.I highly recommend this company in your time of need for quick, efficient and professional service with no attitude or more

Jeremy Wolf, is compassionate and understanding. He has been there and done it with his own family, and together with his wife they dedicate their time and energy into helping other families come together. I know this because my husband was taken by ICE and his bond was set much higher than I could have imagined, having in my hands at any given time. ... With Jeremy, his wife and the rest of the team we were able to piece together the required 80% and set up a affordable and convient payment plan. It was a grueling process, at times I felt like I was going to loose all my hair, as I ran around selling homemade tamales, and had various other fund raisers going on, along with my husband being detained, I lost my home, my dog and my daughter and I pushed forward with the help and support of Jeremy and his team, if It wasn't for there hours of help and dedication, to put a previous bond for my nephew into action to help my husband, we wouldn't have been able to have him home for the Holidays. ... To Jeremy, Veronica, and Amber, who I spoke with often, and the other parts of the team who I was unable to catch their names, I THANK YOU, FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!read more
