Who is Eligible for Bond? – Overview of How to Determine Bond Eligibility Based on the Client’s Immigration History and Criminal Background [00:35:59]

There are three primary detention authorizing statutes for clients in removal proceedings, including:  (1)  INA §235, which addresses individuals arriving in the U.S. without documents or with fraudulent documents, who are subject to mandatory detention under expedited removal provisions under INA §235(b)(A)(i); (2) INA §236(a), which gives the attorney general discretion to detain certain removable non-citizens; and (3) INA §236(c), which refers to mandatory detention.  This panel will provide a brief overview of the foregoing statutes, and also focus on how attorneys can determine whether detained clients are bond eligible and how to request bond.
