What Is a Detainer?

A detainer is an immigration hold requested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) that instructs local law enforcement agencies to hold an individual for up to 48 hours beyond the time they are meant to be released from jail or prison.

ICE requests a detainer when they believe that an individual who has already been apprehended is eligible for deportation. ICE must have probable cause to believe this is the case. Local law enforcement agencies do not legally have to comply with ICE’s requests and may choose which detainers they will act on.

We Can Protect Your Rights

If you are being detained, you have certain rights. First, remember that you have the right to hire an attorney who can represent you and ensure that your rights are not violated.

From the moment a detainer is issued, ICE has only 48 business hours to assume legal custody of you. After the 48-hour period, local law enforcement agencies must allow for your release. If you have been unlawfully detained or detained past the 48-hour window, you have options.

The Charlotte immigration attorneys at Vásquez Law Firm, PLLC can help you:

  • File a habeas petition to challenge your ongoing detention
  • Seek civil damages
  • Understand your rights moving forward and hold law enforcement agencies and/or ICE accountable for violating your rights

In the midst of this frightening experience, seek support from our team. We have offices throughout North Carolina including Raleigh and Smithfield.
