23 Mar Bond Redetermination Motion Granted
A client of ours who is a permanent resident was detained and placed into removal proceedings due to a conviction for possession of an illegal firearm. He was incarcerated by Immigration and Customs Enforcement who set a $15,000 bond. Our client’s family could not afford to pay the $15,000 so we filed a motion for a bond redetermination with the Immigration Judge. In support of the bond redetermination motion we submitted evidence of our clients’ U.S. citizen children, court orders granting him custody of his children, and that he provides financial support to his children. Following our arguments at the Bond Redetermination Hearing the Immigration Judge substantially reduced the bond.
