Immigration detention is a process of holding non-citizens in a detention facility while waiting for their immigration case to be resolved.

This post will discuss how to seek release from immigration detention, and the services provided by Tourzani & Long, LLC.
Understanding Immigration Detention
Immigration detention is used to hold non-citizens who are considered to be a flight risk, a danger to the community, or have violated immigration laws. The detention process is used to ensure that non-citizens attend their immigration hearings and do not disappear while their case is being resolved. Immigration detention can be a traumatic experience, and many detainees suffer from mental health issues as a result of prolonged detention.
How to Seek Release from Immigration Detention
If you or a loved one are in immigration detention, there are several ways to seek release.
- You can seek a bond hearing, where a judge will determine whether you are eligible for release on bond. During the bond hearing, you will need to demonstrate that you are not a flight risk or a danger to the community, and that you are likely to appear at your immigration hearings.
- Seek release on parole. Parole is a discretionary form of release granted by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). To be eligible for parole, you will need to demonstrate that there are humanitarian or other significant reasons for your release.
- Apply for asylum. If you are eligible for asylum, you may be released from detention while your case is being resolved.
