There are laws that guide your family member’s incarceration and processing, including the US Constitution. That means that there are rules, not just for the accused, but also for the ICE agents and police.

Firstly, most undocumented immigrants are allowed to post bail and be released. This means that the person or their family can put up money to get them released from jail. We will talk about what immigration bail bonds are later on, but for now know that you might not have to come up with the whole amount all at once.

Secondly, your loved one has some very clear rights, such as the rights afforded in the Fifth Amendment, which protect life and liberty.

What happens and when?

The first thing that should happen is that the accused (your loved one) will be taken into custody. If you are there, make sure that they stay calm and don’t resist arrest.

  • Don’t run away!
    • Do not argue or physically fight with the officers.
      • Ask politely where the accused will be taken.
        • Make sure that you reassure the accused (and yourself) that there is a process and you will work your way through it.

        Your family member or friend will arrive at the processing center or jail and be taken through the process.

        The Immigration Bond Process

        The immigration bail bond process begins with the arrest of an illegal alien by the Department of Homeland Security Immigrations Customs Enforcement, that person is then taken to a federal law enforcement station for processing and booking. The bond therefore is posted to the federal government. This is one of a number of differences between local bail bonds and immigration bail bonds.

        Next, the immigration bond amount is set by an immigration judge or via custody determination after an interview with the alien by a Deportation Officer. The amount of an immigration bond is determined by the Department of Homeland Security—there is no standard amount. An outside party (Indemnitor) must pay—also referred to as post or “put up”—the immigration bond. If the outside party cannot pay the full amount of the bond, they must make arrangements with an immigration bond company.

        This is where ACTION Immigration Bonds & Insurance Services, Inc. helps you get the bond posted in order to get the person out of jail.

        How Immigration Bondsman Help

        An immigration bail bond, technically a “surety bond”, is a three-party contract between the Homeland Security, the Obligor (Surety) and co-obligor (Agent), and the Principal (also called defendant, respondant or alien). It is the Surety/ Agent who guarantees to Homeland Security that the alien–when released on bond–will be present for each and every Notice to Appear (NTA) in the future. In turn, the Indemnitor (or co-signer) guarantees to the Bondsman that he/she will make sure that the alien appears when required. For this service, the Indemnitor is charged a bond fee or premium. ACTION Immigration Bonds & Insurance Services, Inc. charges a fixed fee based on the full bond amount. Some companies charge an annual premium percentage of the set bond with a two-year minimum, which will result in a higher cost in the long run. The co-signer of the contract (usually a family member or friend of the detainee) guarantees to pay the full amount of the bond if the alien fails to make scheduled appearances.

        To arrange a bond, collateral is needed, such as equity in a home. ACTION is an expert in using creative forms of collateral, including using credit cards.
