What are Removal Proceedings?
Previously referred to as deportation, removal is the procedure through which the US government removes a non-US citizen from the United States based on an Immigration Judge’s removal order.
It is in the jurisdiction of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to initiate a removal proceeding against an individual who is in the United States illegally or by acquiring a green card. A non-US citizen can attract the attention of the immigration authorities in multiple ways.
A non-citizen could become a subject of investigation, if he or she:
Returns from an overseas trip after doing something illegal
Has a scheduled release from serving time for a criminal activity with a dubious immigration status
A failed application for asylum or a green card
If the illegal activities that the individual participates in has immigration consequences, the DHS will commence removal proceedings against that individual. In many cases, non-citizens come on the radar of the DHS, when someone gives a phone-in tip about the person living illegally in the United States. Or, a non-citizen may attract attention during a workplace raid by the immigration department.
In all such cases, the DHS will serve the individual an NTA (Notice to Appear) in a US immigration court. Usually sent by the Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE), the notice will include the following details.
The pretext for starting the removal proceedings
Nature and type of the proceeding
The individual’s right to engage an attorney
The consequences of ignoring the scheduled hearings
The removal or deportation proceedings will be carried out before an immigration judge, who will hear the case and determine whether the individual should be removed or get discretionary relief. If the immigration judge doesn’t administratively terminate the legal proceedings, the matter will be listed for an Individual Hearing which is basically court trial. When the hearing finally comes to an end, the immigration judge will deliver an order either to give the individual some relief or remove him or her from the US.
Over the years, the laws concerning removal proceedings have undergone many changes. In fact, these laws keep changing on a constant basis. Regardless of the changes that happen in this area of immigration legislation, removal procedure laws are complex and confusing.

Immigration Detention and Bond Hearings
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) detains a large number of individuals who have violated the immigration laws. The majority of these people are arrested near the US border every year by the US Customs and Border Protection. The Immigration and Customs Enforcement detains individuals from the inside of the United States. After being detained by these agencies, the individuals are in one of around 200 detention facilities spread across the country.
The rules that apply to individuals in immigration custody are very specific. There are multiple factors that determine what rules will apply in a particular case of immigration detention. The detention rules may also vary from one state to another, depending on how federal courts interpret the immigration laws in the state of your residence. If you, a friend or a family member has been detained by the ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement), you will have eligibility for release on the grounds of some specific set of criteria. In some situations, the detained non-citizen can be released on an immigration bond. However, you’ll require the help of an experienced immigration attorney who will aggressively argue your case.
The Law Office of Tuan Le has assisted numerous detained non-citizens in getting released by way of vigorous representation and arguing that INA §236(c) mandatory detention doesn’t apply in your case.
If you are not a “flight-risk” or a “danger to the community”, the immigration judge may give a release order on your own recognizance, which will not require an immigration bond. This, however, happens in very few cases. Usually, the ICE or the immigration judge will set a bond amount. If you have already failed to pay the bond amount, our law office can help you by requesting the reconsideration of the bond amount. We’ll either get the bond amount entirely waived or get the bond amount reduced to the minimum so that it becomes affordable for you.
The Law Office of Tuan Le has a the knowledge to help obtain a quick release of the detained client. The removal proceeding takes a lot of time to complete, but the detainee can be released, if bond is pursued in an effective manner. Our immigration attorney will gather all the supporting evidence to convince the judge of the detainee’s good moral conduct and community relations. Even if your bond has already been refused, our law office will submit a reconsideration request on the ground of circumstantial changes. Alternatively, we can also appeal to the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) review of the decision.
