Many removable non-citizens are subject to the draconian immigration law of mandatory detention because of their criminal convictions. A lot of people will actually spend more time detained by ICE than the time for which they were originally incarcerated or imprisoned for their criminal charges and convictions.
Immigration detention is not supposed to be a punishment. However, mandatory detention can turn into a form of punishment when ICE is not convinced to exercise its authority to parole individuals pending removal proceedings. A strong case should be made for ICE to make a determination that a person should be paroled because they are neither a flight risk nor a danger to the community. A similar approach that is employed in requesting a bond with the Immigration Court should be made with ICE in the form of a request for parole.
A careful analysis of eligibility for relief from removal should be made and explained to ICE along with the traditional factors which demonstrate that an individual is not a flight risk nor a danger to the community. Carefully drafted and well-argued requests for parole may have an impact on ICE, which may very well result in the release of many people from mandatory detention.
