The fear of an arrest by ICE, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, is something that many immigrants must live with on a daily basis. In part, this is a fear of the possible consequences, but it is also often a fear of the unknown, as you may be unsure of what will happen and how you should react. While it may not fully alleviate your fears, knowing your rights if you are detained can at least remove some of the uncertainty and help you avoid making a scary situation worse.
Regardless of your immigration status, you have certain rights if you are stopped, questioned, or detained by an ICE agent. These include:
Depending on the circumstances, you may also be eligible for bond. Your attorney can help you determine whether this is the case, and can help you prepare for a bond hearing. If you are able to pay the bond, you may be released from detention until your hearing, giving you time to further consult with your attorney and your family to plan for your next steps.
If you are concerned about the possibility of being detained by ICE, having an attorney on your side in advance can help to give you peace of mind if you are arrested.
