Immigration attorneys are all too familiar with a client’s anguish after being taken into ICE custody. Getting a client out of ICE custody can be challenging, particularly if he or she is subject to INA §236(c) mandatory detention. The panelists will discuss some of the latest detention precedents and developments, and present strategies for helping a client get out of jail.

Featured Topics:

  • Who Is Entitled to a Bond Hearing in Immigration Court?
  • INA §236(c) and Matter of Joseph Hearings
  • Clients Removable Under INA §236(c): Arguments for Avoiding Mandatory Detention
  • Limits to Prolonged Mandatory Detention

  • “Case-by-Case” Approach of the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the First, Third, Sixth, and Eleventh Circuits: Reid v. Donelan, Diop v. ICE/DHS, Ly v. Hansen, Sopo v. U.S. Attorney General
