Immigration Detention & Bonds in Houston
Causes for Immigration Detention
Immigrants to the U.S. must keep excellent, clean criminal and driving
records in order to remain in the country. When a
green card holder commits a serious crime or violates the terms of his or her visa,
the immigrant could be investigated by Immigration and Customs Enforcement
(ICE) and placed in immigration detention.
Where are the immigration detention centers in Houston?
The detention centers in the Houston area include the
Houston Contract Detention Facility, the
IAH Secure Adult Detention Facility, and the
Joe Corley Detention Facility. Most ICE detainees are illegal immigrants who have been discovered, immigrants
who have committed a crime involving moral turpitude and immigrants who
have overstayed their visas. In the Houston area, immigrants facing deportation
are detained at the
Houston Contract Detention Facility (CDF).
Posting Bond for Immigrant Detainees
Are you the family member of someone who has been placed in immigration
detention? Hira Law PLLC can help you through the process of posting bond
so that your loved one can be released. A bond is a deposit of money that
can be paid to have a person released from detention on the agreement
that he or she will appear for their court hearing. When the person appears
for the hearing, the bond is refunded. If he or she fails to appear, the
bond is not returned. The amount of bond is set by ICE and varies from
case to case. Bond is set as high as necessary in order to ensure that
the detainee cannot afford to skip their hearing.
Mandatory Detention Cases
Some detention cases are not eligible for bond. Most immigrants who commit a crime involving moral turpitude are not granted bond. Such offenses include drug crimes, sex crimes, terrorism, human trafficking, federal crimes, and multiple convictions where the accumulative sentence is five years or more. If you or your loved one is facing mandatory detention, be sure to retain an aggressive and experienced Houston immigration attorney from our firm to defend you from deportation.
