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 nonimmigrant or 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.
