Where To Get Immigration Bond Help
Immigration bail bonds, immigration detention and immigration policy reform are subjects that are all over the media these days. All too often these topics are thought of in the abstract without the connection being made to the topics and the real humans involved. Media headlines and sound bits regarding immigrants and illegal aliens tend to dehumanize the individuals involved to the point where concentration is more on the policy itself rather than the people impacted. Taking a step back to rethink the policy or understand why a situation may be happening doesn’t always occur. Asylum seekers and other immigrants are people just like everyone else. They have basic needs ranging from housing to educational opportunities and employment. Most are just looking for a way to make a better life for themselves and their families.
Unfortunately, these individuals can encounter strong uncalled for biases that work to interfere with them getting access to the resources and support they may need. Luckily, there are people and organizations that make themselves available to provide assistance and directions to much needed resources that can make a difference. Often times these groups step in to help mitigate the challenges facing those have sometimes been left in very dire situations.

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS
EVERYONE, including undocumented aliens, living in the United States has certain basic rights under the U. S. Constitution! It is important that everyone protect their basic human rights, no matter what.
You have the right to speak to an attorney
- You can simply say, “I need to speak with my lawyer.”
- You have the right to have your immigration attorney with you if you are being questioned by ICE or any other law enforcement agency.
Be sure to talk to an attorney before signing anything
- Immigration officials may attempt to get you to sign away your rights to talk to or see an attorney or judge. If you aren’t absolutely sure of what the document says and what the implications are, don’t sign it until you speak with your attorney.
Always carry a valid immigration document with you
- If you have a green card or work permit that is valid, be sure you always have it on your person at all times. You never know when you may be required to show that you are here legally, and it helps in the identification process.
- We’ve been informed that carrying identification papers from another country, such as a foreign passport, on you could actually create more problems for you and could possibly be used against you in any hearings.
If you think you’re about to be arrested by ICE, be sure to let the officer know if you have under aged kids
- Being a primary caregiver of a U.S. citizen or permanent resident under the age of 18, the officer can or may exercise their own discretion about whether or not to make the arrest.
If you think ICE may be planning raids in your area, have a plan ready. Here are some things you and your family members should do:
- Hardly anybody remembers phone numbers anymore. Be sure you have memorized the phone numbers of at least 2 adult family members that you can call in case of an arrest. Memorizing the phone number of your immigration attorney is also a good idea.
- If you are responsible for the care of either under aged children, elder relatives or anyone with special needs, be sure arrangements have been put in place to cover their care while you are in detention.
- Ensure family members or a trusted friend knows where to locate important papers like birth certificates or any immigration documents in case you are detained.
- Also ensure your friends and/or family members know how to use the ICE locator site. This will help them determine which detention center you have been transported to. ICE’s online detainee locator can be used to locate any adult detainee. Or they can call the local ICE office. Make sure they have your alien registration number written down, if you have one.
