The Bush administration in an apparent “show of strength” to appease the conservative Republican voters are implementing massive arrives of “suspected” illegal aliens. When the “suspected” illegal aliens are arrested they are held without bail for long periods of time.
In recent weeks over 530 people were arrested during raids on people’s homes. Over 800 additional arrests were made while persons were being held in local county jails for various criminal charges. It is critical that if you find yourself in custody and you are not a US Citizen that you retain the services of a criminal defense lawyer to try to have the lawyer get you released from custody. If you sit in custody you are a “sitting duck” just waiting for the INS to do the next sweep and then put an INS hold on you.
It appears that the current Bush administration is going to keep the pressure on to have more illegal aliens rounded up. The sweeps will most likely continue to happen in the local jails. If you do not want to have an INS hold placed upon you, then you need to immediately contact a California criminal defense firm like Wallin and Klarich if you are arrested.
