Defending Undocumented Immigrants from Deportation and Removal
The truth is that the number of people entering the U.S. is greater than the number of visas being issued. This unfortunately, results in millions of undocumented immigrants who live their lives in fear that they could potentially be deported if caught. U.S. Customs and Border Protection and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) may detain and deport any immigrant who is in the country illegally and deemed a priority for deportation. Many immigrants who are a priority, however, are actually eligible for relief and can seek an attorney’s help to legalize their status. Our Austin-based immigration attorneys are committed to defending immigrants who are facing deportation or removal charges. If your loved one has been detained by local law enforcement, CBP, or ICE, you must act quickly. Contact our office today. In addition to Austin, we have offices in Georgetown, Texas and we serve all of Williamson County.
Texas deportation defense attorneys handling all aspects of ICE detainment
Family members are understandably frightened and confused regarding what the next step should be after a loved one is detained by either CBP or ICE. This confusion often leads to needing assistance in the following areas:
- Locating loved ones who have been detained
- Representing detainees at a bond hearing
- Applying for any relief that the detainee may be eligible for
- Representing the detainee in immigration court
- Filing immigration appeals
It is understandable why assistance is needed in these areas. Undocumented immigrants may also receive an ICE detainer or ICE “hold” if they are arrested for any reason. In these situations, family members are often very uncertain as to what the next step should be and they face decisions about paying bonds. They usually do not know what rights their loved one has.
ICE will not notify the family that their loved one has an ICE hold or that they have been detained. Hiring a qualified deportation defense lawyer can ensure that the rights of that immigrant are protected and respected.
Our Texas attorneys aggressively defend those under arrest and those facing deportation proceedings. Where possible, we will communicate directly with your family member and advise them about their rights and future communication with immigration officials. We will ask you about your loved one’s specific circumstances, investigate the reason behind their detainment, determine if they are eligible to apply for any type of relief, and explore if there is a viable defense against their deportation. We explain to you your loved one’s options and help you come to a decision that is in the best interest of your family. If your spouse or family member has been detained by the police or ICE, every second counts. Contact our Austin, San Antonio or Georgetown offices today to speak with a lawyer.
