          Minnesota ICE Detention Facilities

          Not every ICE detention facility allows you to post an immigration bond in Minnesota. If you would like to post an immigration bond it must be done at an ICE-ERO facility that accepts immigration bonds.

          Video transcript: There are two ways to secure release on an immigration bond. First, the family of the detained individual can post the full amount of the bond directly with the federal court. This can be done via cash, check, money order, cashiers check or US bonds/notes (Bonds over $10,000 must be paid with certified check). If the released immigrant shows up at all scheduled court dates the money will be refunded back to the family upon completion of the case. The refund process can take several months. A detained immigrant’s family can also use the services of a licensed immigration bond company. In this type of transaction, the family will deposit the full amount of the bond with the bond company. This money will be held for the life of the case. Upon completion of the case and appearance at all court hearings, the money will be refunded back to the family immediately, less a nominal administration fee paid to the bonding company.
