An immigration detainer is a request that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) makes to a law enforcement agency before a non-citizen is released from custody. This allows ICE to then make arrangements to take custody of that person. When an individual is detained by ICE, it is usually because he or she is at risk of being deported. Individuals can end up being detained by ICE regardless of what led to their incarceration — even when the arrested person had his or her charges dropped.
A variety of conditions may affect the outcome of your case, including:
- Prior criminal felony or misdemeanor convictions
- Prior convictions of illegal reentry to the United States
- Outstanding order of removal
- Prior immigration fraud
- Risk to national security or public safety
