Do You Have an Immigration Hold?
New York City Deportation Defense Lawyer
If you are not a U.S. citizen or are illegally residing in the U.S. and you get arrested; chances are that Immigration & Customs Enforcement ("ICE") will place an immigration detainer on you, if you are brought to a jail or police precinct even for a day. An immigration detainer means that you cannot get out of prison case unless an Immigration Judge later orders it. What Musa-Obregon & Associates does is exactly that: we get the immigration judge to order the release of the person on bond. Many people are given the false information that they cannot ever be released on the new criminal charges, even if they pay the bail. For many people nothing can be further from the truth.
We have obtained the release for persons from prisons with immigration detainers, even when they were in the U.S. illegally, with criminal records and even criminal convictions. Our past record of success, however, cannot guarantee a similar outcome for your case since every case is different.
The Importance of Experienced Representation
Many criminal and immigration lawyers, criminal judges and prosecutors incorrectly believe that once ICE places a detainer on a criminal defendant that the person will not get out of jail except when they are sent to their home country. That is incorrect because a lawyer can sometimes mount a strong defense against deportation. Deportation proceedings are a process and many people can apply early for bond to be released from incarceration while the case is still pending. There are many illegal immigrants that can be released in a few days or weeks - even with an immigration detainer - after hiring a skilled attorney. There are, however, some people that have aggravated felonies or narcotics trafficking convictions and other types of convictions that are not bond eligible. Please call one of the lawyers at Musa-Obregon who can tell you if the person is eligible for release on bond.
