We have a cousin who is in the process of being deported, and are wondering how long the detention period usually is.
Until the case is done. It can be from a few days to years. It depends on what is happening in the case, for example if he is fighting deportation or not, on where he is from, and on what he is charged with (decision if bond is possible or not).
