I am an immigration attorney in Las Vegas. A significant part of my business is helping individuals who have been placed in removal (deportation) proceedings. My goal is to keep families together, but removal tears families apart.

I am posting this in hope of preventing avoidable removal cases. The plain and simple fact is: If you are arrested by any local police department and you are undocumented, ICE (Immigration & Customs Enforcement) will detain you once you are released from local custody. Southern Nevada police departments cooperate with ICE (the 287g program).

HOW FREQUENTLY DOES THIS HAPPEN? If you have an unpaid traffic ticket or have failed to show up for a court date, it is likely that a court has issued a bench warrant for your arrest. Any encounter with any police officer could result in your arrest. Then, even though you have paid your fine and penalties, the court will release you. But you will go from the backdoor of the jail to the waiting ICE van.

Another common scenario is arrest on DUI or Domestic Violence charges. Most of these arrests require at least an overnight hold. After appearance before the justice and release on bail or your own recognizance, expect that ICE will then detain you.

INTO THE ICEBOX! Once in ICE custody, you will be interviewed and fingerprinted and then transferred to one of its two detention centers in Henderson and Pahrump. In many cases if you have been in the United States for a significant period of time, you are entitled to have an Immigration Judge hear your case, UNLESS you agree to skip this step by agreeing to Expedited Removal. It is believed that some ICE officers aggressively encourage detainees to elect Expedited Removal, BUT by doing so you will lose any rights to stay here. Like local courts, you may ask the judge to set a monetary bond for release from detention.

WHAT HAPPENS IN IMMIGRATION COURT? Once you are in Immigration Court there are several programs (forms of relief) that could prevent your removal from the United States.

INFORMATION ON BENCH WARRANTS. Each of the local courts provides some method of search for bench warrants. The self-help center at the Regional Justice Center, 200 Lewis Street, Las Vegas can help you file a motion to “quash” (eliminate) a warrant. Until this motion is heard and granted, continue to avoid any contact with police or court officers.
