    Answered . Nothing. He will be released on bail but to the custody of ICE. There, in removal proceedings before an immigration judge you will be able to ask for a release from ICE custody on bond. I suggest you hire an experienced immigration attorney to assist you in the process and reduce the unnecessary time in detention. We, at www,myattorneyusa.com can help in this matter. We do have the necessary experience. We offer a free 15 min phone or sype consultation.

    Answered . If the Judge gives your son bail, which he will, you can post the bail. This will "free" him up to go to INS Detention (although they could take him there anyway). If he qualifies, he may be able to post immigration bail. Thus, he will be on the outside fighting his case.

    Answered . I agree with both of my colleagues above. I would just add that once the criminal bond is paid and he has satisfied all debts to the local authority, ICE has 48 hours to pick him up. If they don't pick him up by the end of the 48 hours then an experienced attorney will be able to make an argument for his release. If ICE picks him up then an immigration attorney can review his criminal record and determine whether he is eligble for a bond. Good luck!
