ICE Agents in Court
ICE officers have stated they may be entering courtrooms in the future to look for certain wanted individuals. If you are undocumented, you should understand your rights and be advised and accompanied by an attorney while in court.
ICE Agents in Jail
ICE officers receive information about non-U.S. citizens from local jails. If you are undocumented, your prior immigration or criminal history can have an impact on whether ICE is notified. You should be prepared with the advice of an attorney about your particular situation to try and maximize the liklihood you are released. This is especially true while going through booking or trying to post a bond.
