If a documented or undocumented immigrant has been arrested for breaking the laws of the United States, they may find themselves with an I.C.E Hold. An I.C.E Hold arises when the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency or “I.C.E.,” has determined that the crime for which the immigrant has been arrested potentially makes them inadmissible or deportable from the U.S. It is likely that someone with an I.C.E. hold will be transferred to I.C.E. custody, placed in removal proceedings before an immigration judge, and will need to request for an Immigration Bond to be released.
