    Answered . It depends on the underlying reason for them holding your brother-in-law. The first step is for you to hire a lawyer. The second step is for you and your lawyer to determine the basis for the hold. Then your lawyer can request a bond with ICE or if ICE refuses then he/she can file a motion for bond redetermination with the immigration judge.
