How can I get back my passport from ICE?

Asked over 1 year ago - Washington, DC

My passport has been taken away from me by ICE at Newark. The removal proceeding has been terminated by a judge and I am still unable to get back my passport. I filed a G-884 at USCIS moths ago. And no answer. Can somebody please tell me how I can get back my National passport as its important for me to have it.

    Answered . If you had a lawyer in removal proceedings, the same lawyer can help you get your passport back. If not, you can try following up with ICE yourself or get a help by contacting an immigration lawyer.
