Default Detention and Removal: A guide for Detainees and families

This was taken from the legal aide societies site and is a PDF file.
IT is very informative and there are a few rescourses at the end of it.

Lightbulb Just a little Info

From what I know they get charged for Re Entry and do federal time and then later released to Mexico in which they are not allowed to enter The United States again. My husband is doing four years for Re Entry and as soon as he is done he will be released to Juarez, Mexico.

Default Question for you

My husband is about to get deported in Feb. 2006 am so scared, I want to cry every day. What can he and I expect. He was bought to the U.S. a very young age. So, really he doesn't know anything about Mexico. Do you know where they are dropped off. I have a million questions where do I start? You said your husband was serving 4 years was that because he attempted to enter the U.S. illegally then got caught and now is serving 4 years???

Just to give you a little more information about my friend, he is a green card holder, and has lived here in the USA for over 10 years. It was a drug offense, and looking at all the posts last night, which were very helpful, it does then look like he has no chance of staying here.
He has in the 3 years he hs served, excepted the fact that he will more than likely be deported back to the UK. But what is this next step all aoubt??? I mean, surely the giverment has 3 years to get thier paper work together for this case of deportation?? does this mean he may have a chance at staying??? Will he get told if he is allowed back into the USA, please let me know as there are so many questions I think he should ask, but, dont know where to start, and soon enough the INS will be picking him up from County Jail again any day.

Default Judge Hearing

Bella, my brother is in Lancaster,CA by INS, he was released from prison after 3 years and 8 months, he will see the judge on May 5th, he will not ask to stay. Do you know if he will be deported the same day to Mexico, or how much time will it take before his deportation. Thank you,

CLAO

It depends if they're wanted for crimes in their own country. So, if he has warrants at "home" when he gets off the plane, he'll be detained and do his time there too.

Also, the American government usually makes them complete their sentence in the States (for crimes committed there) before sending them to detention, (Which is just another jail, but with no defined time period, A very, very, difficult thing to deal with emotionally)

Good luck !

No, he won't be deported the same day. It can take months (sorry, even years) They have to do a search and make sure he's not wanted for other crimes in the States, or at home. Also, if he's a violant offender, they have to send a gaurd with him, and they have a back log. Then you have to wait, in case they're (The gaurds) are on vacation, or having a frigging coffee break. It's really unbelievable, and all about money.

He will also need to have a current passport, and a birth cetificate will have to be applied for, if there isn't one available. They (the INS) will need to make certain of his country of origin, is it really Mexico? etc.

It takes time, dependant upon how soon his home country reacts to the request and how fast they do things there. For example: When I was in detention, some African people, that were literally "born in the Jungles" had no birth certificates, there might be a paper, filed some where, signed by the chief of their village (yes, really, this is true) saying "so & so", was born under this-or-that tree, on this-or-that date. Those poor guys were in detention a long, long time. You can't make this stuff up. It's an unblelievable beaurocratic process, but it has to be done in order not to "violate their human rights"

I suppose, in some cases, 3 meals a day and a roof over your head in an American detention center (jail) is preferrable to going back to certain death, or torture and starvation in (Somallia, Haiti, etc).

I'm from England. A major world power, and it took months for me. I had no warrants here (I had never lived here for 32 years) I had a birth cert, but no passport, and they still made us jump through hoops)

In "detention" you have fewer rights than when you're a convict.

Sorry to tell you all of this, but, like I said, it happenend to me, and it was a nightmare. Worse than prison.

Hello everyone, I just joined today and have several questions, hopefully someone can lead me in the right direction. My ex-husband of 11 years has been sentenced to a New York prison and has a release date of 11/2010. He just sent me his immigration papers signed by the judge. He hasn't even finished his sentence and he already had the deportation hearing. He is a native of Colombia and is asking for political asylum to the U.K..We have recently decided to remarry but I don't know how I can or what I can do to make that happen. We have 2 kids who are 14 and 10. One of my questions is can you appeal a deportation ruling or does anyone know how this political asylum work?

I am a new user and came across this immigration issue and wanted to tell my brothers story and see if its similar to anyone. My Bro. did 19 yrs for aggrv. sex. asst. he was a legal alien. before he was release on parole, he was told he was being deported. He only stayed in ins holding for less than a week, because he was not fighting extradition. Usually you will get release thru the original point of entry. which was tamaulipas, mexico. They drove him and other inmates, to the border finger printed them and release them to mexico. Fortunatly we knew when he was taken to mexico and my parents went and met him at the border because he also came over here very young and would be lost w/out my parents. Plus he is now mentally ill and disable. It was very, very hard on the family because one of parents had to stay in mexico and care for him. my mom lost her job and her house because she got hurt at work. It has been a nightmare. The sad thing is that he is out of prison but his mind is still there. I wanted to know, he has since come back to the usa. he does not work, or drive or is married. What would happen to him if he got caught? would he be deported or sent back to prison?

Angellove, Your families' story is heart-breakin, but, unfortunately our gov. doesn't care. Most likely if he is caught he will serve time for illegal re-entry and then be deported.

Default Possible Fed Time

Hi, I'm new @ this but I have some questions. My husband is in county jail pending transfer to state jail for a sentence. He is on INS hold and is facing illegal reentry charge after that, does anyone know the shortest or longest time feds have taken to pick up someone. Also, is there a certain place they go since they are immigrants??What is the longest sentence you have heard of for illegal reentry?? I know the maximum he is facing is 20 years, he was deported after serving 7 years for aggravated felony, and now after 3 years has been caught without license, he will be transferrred to state soon but god only knows how long before feds catch his sentence, Does anyone have any experience with this?? Thanks

What is the state charge he is looking at? Is it only driving without license? I would think if that was all then the feds will come get him soon. And file federal charges for illegal re-entry. My husband is serving federal time for that right now. He re-entered due to very serious health problems. We have been legally married for almost 15 years and we have an 8 year old son. I am an American citizen.
The maximum sentence is 20 years. My husband got 6.4 years. He has been in since Novmeber 2001 and we have 358 days left, so less than a year. It has been a complete nightmare.
After he is released he will be deported back to Mexico and I am going with him. It will be a new life for us and our son but it beats the good ol USA and its screwed up system. Viva Mexico!!!!!!!!!!
PM me if you want to chat or if you have any questions. Good luck.
