Q: How Will I Know if I am Eligible for Bond or Parole?

A: You will be assigned an ICE immigration officer upon being picked up and detained in the custody of DHS. This is true even if you are not detained at a DHS detention facility. Your ICE officer will know whether you are bond eligible. The officer may also be in a position to set and/or reduce your immigration bond. 

Q: What Should I do if I am Picked up by Border Patrol or ICE?

A: Most foreign nationals that are picked up by U.S. Border Patrol or U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement ("ICE") - both agencies within the Department of Homeland Security ("DHS") - will be eligible for release on bond. Those who are not eligible for release on bond may be eligible for release on "parole."
