  1. With an INS hold, he won't be released. Get an immigration lawyer to see if you can get the hold lifted; if the hold gets lifted, then bail can be posted. Good luck

  2. It sounds like he will be referred to USICE for removal proceedings. Consult with an immigration attorney to determine whether he has a chance for release on bond from USICE and any defense to removal proceedings.

  3. Unfortunately with an INS hold there is not a chance to bail out. My suggestion is you contact a local attorney to discuss your options.

  4. Mr. Meiser and Mr. Hanlon are correct. Normally, no bail is possible on such a case, however, with the help of a good immigration attorney, sometimes a release can be worked out. Good luck.

  5. With an INS hold he will not be able to bail out. Get a good immigration attorney!


  6. No. Not with an ICE hold. He needs an immigration attorney and a criminal defense attorney pronto.
