Why Immigrants Are Detained by The U.S. Government
ICE will typically detain an immigrant when they believe that they have been in the U.S. illegally. Immigrants are placed in detainee housing to ensure that they appear before the immigration court so proper action can be taken.
There are many reasons why someone may be detained by ICE. These reasons include, but not limited to:
- Committing a crime; even minor traffic infractions
- Having an outstanding order of deportation
- Failing to attend immigration hearings
- Overstaying your visa
- Illegally re-entering the United States
Sadly, many of these individuals who are detained end up being deported. ICE officials have indicated that in 2018, just over 256,000 ICE detainees were deported – up 13% from 2017. Our legal team can work to stop that from happening to your loved one.
