There are several factors that an Immigration Judge keep in consideration
when deciding whether an immigrant should be allowed to be released with
a Bond. Some of these factors include:

- Family ties;
- Employment history;
- Reason for the detention;
- Financial ability to post a Bond.
If the motion is granted, the Court will set an amount for the Bond that

appeal with the BIA.
