Will I be detained (in jail) while my immigration case goes to trial?

by Blake P. Somers, Lawyer Referral Service Panelist

The best answer to this question is: it just depends on the circumstances of your case. Just as an observation, it appears that a large majority of individuals in removal proceedings are either never detained, or, if so, are released on some sort of bond. However, certain classes of individuals (such as aggravated felons and terrorists) are simply ineligible for bond and, as such, will be detained until the conclusion of their proceedings.
