What are Immigration Bonds and who are they used for? 

People who reside in the U.S. but are not U.S. citizens may face law violations due to their immigration status. For these people, both immigration and criminal violations/convictions can result in their deportation. The legal procedure for this is called a “removal” proceeding. Several categories of violations are grounds for people to be deported from the U.S.:

  1. People who work in the U.S. but have violated their visa terms, or those who work without permission.
  2. People who have been convicted of crimes. People who simply enter the U.S. without the proper authority.
  3. Members of organizations that are prohibited (such as terrorist organizations).
  4. Particular people who have been in the U.S. for 5 years or less and have become a public charge.
  5. People with denied applications for asylum, and have been referred to an Immigration Judge.

People who are non-citizens that are subject to deportation, exclusion or removal often look for help to remain in the U.S. because their families are here or they have a job and pay taxes. There are a few legal proceedings that they can do, including protection through asylum, status adjustment, withholding of removal, removal cancellation, suspending deportation, waivers of inadmissibility or voluntary departure.

If the non-citizen is in violation of immigration laws or suspected of it, they could be arrested by the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and/or US Department of Homeland Security Immigration (DHS).

Bail Bonds for non-U.S. citizens and Immigration Detainees

People who are not U.S citizens and get arrested for suspected immigration violation status or criminal activity may be eligible for an immigration bail bond. This bail bond is a federal bond that can be issued to people who are detained by the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement and/or US Department of Homeland Security Immigration. An immigration bail bond allows detainees to leave the detention facility or jail until their court hearing. Theses bail bonds in California are much like surety bail bonds that are issued for U.S. citizens, in that they act as insurance that the person will attend all their court appearances or forfeit the bond.

If the accused person is deemed ineligible to post an immigration bail bond, they must remain in detention until their court hearings and the resolution of their case.

Criminal vs. Immigration Bail Bonds

People who are arrested and taken to Immigration Detention are not the same as non-citizens arrested for committing a criminal act. The criminal justice system and immigration detention are separate systems in the U.S. A criminal case will be pursued and litigated in the criminal justice system, and immigration detention is solely for immigration cases.

The amount of the immigration bond is determined by the judge, and depends on several factors in the case, such as any past arrests or crimes of the accused, the nature or type of the crime, as well as possible risk that the accused will not attend their court appearances and leave. The persons individual nationality or their current immigration status is not usually considered in eligibility for an immigration bail bonds.

Types of Immigration Bail Bonds

There are two common kinds of immigration bail bonds that ICE detainees are eligible to receive: Delivery bonds and Voluntary bonds.

A Delivery Bond is used when an alien is arrested by ICE and they are given a Warrant of Arrest (Form I205) and a Notice of Custody Conditions (Form I-286). The accused person promises to appear at all court proceedings until the case is closed.

  • I guess this is a slightly embarrassing review, but anyway. I was sick of the smell and ready to go home and take a shower. I called a bunch of numbers, trying desperately to find the bondsman that could spring me the quickest. Big Marco Bail Bonds said they'd be able to get me out as soon as all my processing was done (around 2pm.) Others I had called had said 4,6,7pm! No way! They followed through on their end and I was out breathing fresh air at 2:05pm. Signed some paperwork after getting out, and then a month later after my court date.
