Unless Granted Parole, Detained Immigrants Ineligible for Release on Bond

On April 16, 2019, the Attorney General issued a crucial decision that impacts detained immigrants and their ability to be released from detention on a bond.

The decision that is currently in effect has altered two matters, which are as follows:

  1. Overruling of Matter of X-K-. The respondent in this matter is a citizen of India who traveled to Mexico and, from there, crossed illegally into the United States. He was apprehended within hours and placed in expedited removal proceedings. The immigration judge allowed him to be released from custody on a bond of $27,000, which was posted in September 2018. The Attorney General then reversed the order that granted bond to the respondent and stated that he must be detained until his removal proceedings conclude, unless DHS paroles the respondent.
  2. All detained undocumented immigrants transferred from expedited to full proceedings after establishing a credible fear of persecution or torture are now ineligible for release on bond. Unless an undocumented immigrant is paroled under section 212(d)(5)(A) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, he or she must be detained until the asylum claim is decided.

Considering these recent changes, we strongly recommend you or your family members that have recently crossed the border and are undocumented immigrants to please contact a skilled U.S. immigration attorney about your case. Get your legal options explained to you by contacting 212-203-4795.


Who Qualifies for Parole?

Undocumented immigrants that are detained for further consideration of an asylum claim generally may receive parole into the U.S. for “urgent humanitarian reasons” (ex: having a serious medical condition) or “significant public benefit.” Parole may also be authorized under other conditions since it is exercised with discretion.
