Thousands of California Immigrant Detainees May Now Be Eligible for Bond Hearings

If you have any friends or loved ones who are currently detained in immigration detention facilities, we may be able to help get them bonded out even if they have previously been denied bond by ICE or an Immigration Judge (those subject to mandatory detention.) We have been informed earlier today that a U.S. District Court decision published in Northern California will, as of this week, also be applied to Southern California detainees, including those detained in the Adelanto, Theo Lacy, James Musick, and various other ICE detention facilities.

Note: Time is of the essence as detention laws are rapidly changing.

Prior to the publication of this decision, anyone who had committed various crimes that deemed them subject to mandatory detention without bond (including aggravated felonies and two or more crimes involving moral turpitude, such as theft or fraud crimes) would have to wait at least six months in ICE detention to be entitled to a bond hearing.

What this new case law says is that anyone who was released from criminal jail or prison and was picked up at a later point by ICE but not immediately from the jail or prison after completing his or her criminal sentence, is NOT subject to mandatory detention EVEN IF they committed an aggravated felony or two or more crimes involving moral turpitude. These individuals no longer need to be subjected to six months of detention and can immediately after being picked up by ICE officers ask for a bail/bond hearing in front of an immigration judge.

We will review the case and see if we can help your loved one get released from ICE custody on bond/bail while waiting for his or her immigration court date in light of this week’s breaking developments.

Mr. Nalbandian was the lawyer who handled my wife's Green card case. Thanks to him everything went well and at very timely manner. I would recommend him with most confidence.
