How long can ICE detain you? ICE can put an immigration “hold” or “detainer” on you if you are deportable. If ICE puts a hold on you, ICE will likely pick you up from the jail. To allow ICE to do this, the jail will probably keep you for up to 48 hours after the time you are supposed to be released.
What happens when ICE detains you? If you are detained, ICE is required by law to serve you with an NTA within 72 hours, but some officers neglect to do this, or issue a blank or only partially filled-in NTA instead. The Notice to Appear lists the immigration-related charges against you. You then have the right to see an immigration judge.
How do I know if I have an immigration hold? The simplest way is to use the ICE Online Detainee Locator System. This is available online and can be accessed any time of day and allows people to search by Alien Registration Number (or A-number) as well as by biological information like name, country or birth and date of birth.
