DuPage County Immigration Detention Attorneys

Skilled Assistance for Non-U.S. Citizens Detained by ICE in Illinois

Non-U.S. Citizens are sometimes arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for immigration violations. In addition, some immigrants are arrested by state or local law enforcement agencies and detained and turned over to ICE for questioning. ICE detentions or detainers can be among the most terrifying experiences an immigrant can undergo. There is great uncertainty about the process and what will happen in the future, whether they will be separated from their family, or worse. If you or a family member has been arrested and/or detained by ICE, it is imperative to speak with an experienced immigration lawyer as soon as possible, so you understand your rights and options.

At Mevorah & Giglio Law Offices, we have several decades of combined experience helping clients in Chicagoland and throughout Northern Illinois with all immigration matters. Our award-winning attorneys frequently represent clients for ICE detention/detainers, deportation/removal and all other types of criminal issues and immigration. We have extensive knowledge of the detention process, your rights as a detainee and what is necessary to secure a positive outcome in your case. We put our experience to work to give immigrants a strong voice and the skilled representation they deserve when dealing with large and intimidating government agencies.

Arrested by ICE or Local Law Enforcement

There are several ways a non-U.S. citizen can wind up in the custody of ICE. For example, some are arrested directly by ICE during workplace raids or in their own homes. In other cases, state or local police may arrest you for criminal or even traffic violations. In the latter instance, if local law enforcement suspects you are an undocumented immigrant, they may contact ICE. In most cases, ICE will file a detainer asking law enforcement to hold you for an additional 48 hours so you can be questioned. If ICE does not take custody of you before the 48 hours is up, you are supposed to be released.

Once you are in the custody of ICE, a deportation officer will question you to determine if removal proceedings should be initiated. If proceedings are initiated, you will be served with a Notice to Appear (NTA) before an immigration judge. The deportation officer will also decide whether or not to grant you an immigration bond; an amount of money that can be paid to the court to secure your release and allow you to return to your U.S. residence while removal proceedings are pending. If you are considered a low risk of missing your removal hearing and not considered a danger to the community, you are more likely to be granted a bond.
