A bond is an amount of cash or assents to consolidate payment or other obligation. It is an agreement that is based on the state to release the prisoner, based on the guarantee that the accused will attend on the dates and locations established to respond to the charges against him. Immigration bail is the term used when a person pays a certain amount of money to get out of jail or custody of the immigration service called Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE). The money given will be returned if you meet all the orders to be issued by the judge or ICE also including the departure of the territory if ordered.
Any foreign citizen or legal permanent resident who has been arrested by ICE qualifies for a bail application depending on their criminal history and immigration history; they should not be analyzed as a person who may poses a risk to society. In conclusion it may not require a bail bond hearing if he/she has committed serious offenses, if they have been involved in terrorist activities or against the government, or if the judge has them classified as an illegal immigrant newcomer.
Immigration laws continue to be increasingly stringent, and there are more and more detainees for the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
Sometimes there is a fixed amount of bail, if not in this case you may apply to the immigration judge for a bond which is fixed for you. They may request a bail bond hearing, or ask the immigration judge to lower the bail if ICE determines. The lowest amount of bail set by the immigration judge is $1500. It should be clear that if the judge finds that the bail was set too low, they may raise it.
In general you should prove to the Immigration Judge you will not be a flight risk or danger to the community, asking family or friends to help you provide evidence such as a copy of the legal permanent resident card, birth certificates of spouse, children and parents, as well as any evidence in which you may have a property in the United States, proof of legal employment and better yet if you can include letters of support from family or community members stating what you have helped them with assistance in events or in circumstances where they have needed you.
For the person imprisoned one of the most important aspects of their case is the bond hearing, because if bail is denied for the accused, they will remain in jail until their case is fully resolved.
If you cannot pay the full amount of the Immigration bail you will remain in prison until the case is resolved. There are several private companies that are dedicated to help pay part of the bond, any family can make a contract with them.
These companies are now asking for guarantees that they will be repaid the money they lent to the borrower; remember that these companies charge interest.
When the Immigration Judge determines the incarcerated be granted bail, you then pay the bail and will be released, the bail will serve as guarantee to ensure you are going to meet their obligations to attend subsequent court hearings. If at any moment something occurred that prevented them from performing their duties, the bond money will be confiscated.
