What happens when you are arrested and have no papers?
When the arrested person is in the country without documents, immigration usually puts what is called an “ICE Hold”.
This ICE hold is not a deportation order or that the accused person is already with immigration.
This hold means that once the person is released; either on bail or the criminal case is resolved, the defendant will then be transferred to immigration custody.
If the defendant is released on bond and later transferred with immigration, this can jeopardize the successful resolution of the criminal matter.
Therefore, it is of the utmost importance to speak with an experienced criminal lawyer in immigration cases immediately after the person has been arrested to make the correct decisions.
Acting early and in the right way can make the difference between obtaining a successful result or not.
