My brother have the right to pay a bond on his criminal charge,but he also have a hold on immigration.He's being in jail for the last four months,just because they keep changing the trial date.When he got arrest we paid for his bond but they put the hold a few hours after that,and we got the money back. Now they move the trial for February 2012,that's 7 months in jail with no conviction.What happend if we paid for his bond again? There's any way that he can come out?
he can not get out on bond as long as their is an immigration hold. You need to hire an attorney qualified in criminal defense and removal defense. An attorney can get things moving along more quickly and deal with the criminal matter in a way that will provide a defense to removal in the immigration court.

I agree with Attorney Mulder's comments. He needs to contact his criminal attorney to determine if his bond is still available. If he paid the bond again the ICE hold is still there. If he is bonded the ICE hold will still keep him there unless his criminala ttorney can contact ICE and try to get that dealt with. Its no different than if a a persons bonds out but there is an out of county hold - ie Collier Conty hold on a Dade County prisioner. Good luck.

If he has an immigration hold, paying the criminal bond will result in ICE being called and their taking him into custody. This can have a negative effect on both his criminal and immigration cases. Consult with an experienced immigration attorney for case specific advice.
I agree with my colleagues.
