Detainees Have Rights. Call (832) 981-2170 Today.
In 2012, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) removed 409,849 people from the country.
Many removals can be prevented. In many cases, immigrants and illegal aliens are not aware that they may appeal removal orders and delay proceedings with the help of an experienced deportation attorney.
Some statistics about removals:
- More than half of those deported (55 percent, or 225,390) were convicted on criminal charges (criminal aliens), which was the largest number and percentage of criminal alien removals in U.S. history.
- 21 percent were repeat immigration violators.
- 17 percent were recent border crossers.
- 4 percent were removed outside of ICE priority removal proceedings.
- 3 percent were immigrant fugitives.

Is Your Family Members Stuck in Immigration Detention?
Noncitizens may be placed on ICE hold without bond until their case is resolved. If your loved one or relative is being held at the Houston Contract Detention Facility (CDF or CCA) hire a Houston immigration detention lawyer to begin the legal process with ICE agents and the Immigration Court to ensure the detainee's rights are protected and to seek an immigration bond.
Without a legal representative, a detainee may sit in CDF or CCA for days or weeks. In most cases, a bond will not be set, and a bond hearing will not be scheduled if a lawyer does not file a motion for a bond hearing through a formal legal process.
Applications for removal relief and other applications must be filed directly with the Houston Immigration Court. Ms. Yegani will help you navigate the BIA appeals process and work tirelessly to reach a favorable resolution in a timely manner.
Does Your Family Member Have a Criminal Case and an ICE Hold?
A Houston immigration detention attorney with extensive experience should handle all aspects of any ICE hold or case. Get a lawyer on the case as soon as possible! Status in the U.S. and deportation are immediate risks.
You may be able to get him or her out of immigration detention if an immigration lawyer files a motion for a bond hearing with the immigration court. People may be held in immigration detention for a long time. They need legal representation to file for a bond hearing.
Mana Yegani appears on behalf of her clients in Immigration Court regularly. She customizes strategies for clients facing extremely challenging situations, working to reduce detention time and to fight removal cases.
What Rights Do Immigrants Have?
ICE must follow federal legal procedures when it arrests aliens who are determined to be inadmissible at the border or at airports. Additionally, immigrants who have violated the law (e.g., overstaying a visa, committing certain criminal offenses, working illegally, falsifying documents, voting illegally or helping others enter the U.S. illegally) also have federal rights.
These rights include the following:
- Legal representation
- Notice of charges against them
- Examination of the evidence against them
- Cross-examination of government witnesses
- Offer evidence in the case
- Appeal the removal order
Appealing Orders for Removal
Ms. Yegani also handles appeals, motions to reopen, and stays of deportation orders under a range of circumstances. She can represent your case personally and request an immigration judge review.
