Immigration Detention: From Pickup to Release Seminar airs April 3


When your immigrant client is detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the three main questions that are often asked are: (1) what is the distinction between criminal and non-criminal detention, (2) is your client a candidate for bond, and (3) how will detention impact your client’s chances of overcoming removal.

Immigration attorney Harlan York answers these queries and many more in this program on immigration detentions. Mr. York explains the applicable Code of Federal Regulations and the differences in treatment for those with and without green cards.

In addition, he covers which violations are characterized as “non-criminal”, what factors determine the length of the detention, and when the 8 C.F.R. Section 208.31 exception applies. You will also learn important practice tips regarding bail hearings that will prove invaluable to your clients, and the criteria considered when a bond amount is determined. This program will be extremely helpful for immigration attorneys to learn about detentions and how to help their clients remain legally in the United States.
