Being arrested is already a frightening experience. For a non-citizen, this can be especially terrifying and could cause you to be placed on immigration hold even if it had been a minor charge.
Immigration Put On Hold
Typically, it does not take very long for the immigration authorities to be notified when a non-citizen has been placed in jail regardless of how serious the crime is. Often this results in the immigration authorities placing the non-citizen on an immigration hold before they even have the chance to post bail. Though even if the immigration authorities fail to place an immediate hold, it is not something you want to chance.
For those non-citizens placed on immigration hold, they will need to be held for an additional 48 hours after posting bail or after having been released. During that time, the non-citizen will be surrendered to immigration custody which can be damaging for their immigration status.
