ICE Detention

/ Deportation and removal defense

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention refers to the detention of individuals by the U.S. government for immigration-related reasons. ICE is the federal agency responsible for enforcing immigration laws in the United States, and one of its functions is to detain individuals who are subject to removal (deportation) or who are awaiting immigration court proceedings.


What are the reasons for detention?

ICE may detain individuals for various reasons, including:
  • Undocumented immigrants who are apprehended by ICE agents during immigration enforcement operations;
  • Individuals with final orders of removal who are subject to deportation;
  • Asylum seekers who are placed in detention while their asylum claims are being processed;
  • Individuals who are considered a flight risk or a danger to the community and have been denied bond;
  • Certain individuals with criminal records who have completed their criminal sentences but are subject to immigration detention pending removal.

How can I find out which facility a detainee is located?

ICE operates a network of detention facilities, including immigration detention centers, county jails, and private detention facilities, where individuals may be held during immigration proceedings. You may be able to find the facility on the ICE detainee locator site.

Can a detainee be released?

Some detainees may be eligible for release on bond or on their own recognizance while their immigration cases are pending. The ability to secure release often depends on factors such as the individual's immigration history, criminal record, and the nature of their case.

What is the bond amount?

The bond amount is set by ICE or an immigration judge and can vary widely, depending on the individual circumstances of the case. The bond amount serves as a financial guarantee to ensure the detainee's appearance at future immigration court proceedings.
