If your family member or loved one has been detained at the George Bush Intercontinental Airport or the Houston Hobby Airport, you are probably very worried and scared. The good news is that help is available.
It is common for undocumented immigrants to be held in detention at the Houston Contract Detention Facility (Centro de Detención del Contrato de Houston) after arriving at a Houston airport. Although these individuals are not eligible for bond, they may be paroled and released from detention.
It's extremely important to work with an immigration lawyer who understands the policies of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) so that your loved one has the best chance at getting released.
Other issues that should be addressed with a lawyer include:
- Is a change of venue necessary because your family member lives in another state?
- Is your family member going to be facing deportation?
- Has your family member been charged with a crime?
- What rights does your family member have?
Undocumented immigrants have limited and fragile rights in the United States, and they need to be fiercely protected. The only way to make sure your loved one's rights are protected is by talking to an experienced immigration lawyer for advice.
