Immigration Detention & Bonds
It is commonly believed that, once an immigrant has been detained by the Immigrations Customs Enforcement (ICE), they will automatically be deported; but this is not true. First, a detainee will be given a 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.
Types of Immigration Bonds
There are two different kinds of immigration bonds: delivery and voluntary. A delivery bond allows a detainee temporary release, giving them the opportunity to seek legal representation and counsel outside of their detainment. The bond serves as insurance that the detainee will return for their court hearing because, when they do, their bond will be refunded.
Anyone can post bond for a detained immigrant, so it is very common for a friend or loved one to post their bond, especially since the bond will be refunded when the detainee attends their court hearing. The second kid of bond is a voluntary bond. When a person is eligible for this kind of bond, it allows them to voluntarily leave the United States within a certain time period, forfeiting their legal immigration to the United States.
