USICE Detainers
You are here: Home \ USICE Detainers

When the local police arrest a non citizen for a criminal offense, they will inform USICE that they have a non citizen in their custody depending upon the nature of the offense and the policies of the local police force. USICE will, in turn, file a “detainer” against the person which, under the regulations, requires the jail to not release the person for 48 hours from the time that the person is required to be released in order to give USICE time to take custody of the person. This presents a complex situation in which the case must be evaluated by an experienced deportation lawyer because in some instances it is recommended to pay the bond, which will trigger an arrest by USICE, and other instances, it is not recommended.
