UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEW JERSEY
Civil Action No. 17-6106 (JMV)
Essex County Correctional Facility
354 Doremus Ave.

Petitioner, pro se
BRYAN K. LONEGAN
Office of Immigration Litigation

On behalf of Respondent
VAZQUEZ, United States District Judge
Petitioner filed a Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241 on
August 12, 2017. (ECF No. 1.) He alleges a violation of his right to due process based on
prolonged pre-removal order detention in the custody of Immigration and Customs Enforcement
at Essex County Correctional Facility since January 25, 2016. (“ICE”). (Id. at 2-3.)
Respondent submitted a letter response to the petition on November 13, 2017. (ECF No.
6.) Respondent does not object to a remand ordering an Immigration Judge to provide Petitioner
with a bond hearing, in accordance with 8 C.F.R. § 1003.19(c). The Court will, therefore, grant
the habeas petition and order Respondent to provide Petitioner with a bond hearing. See ChavezAlvarez v. Warden York County Prison, 783 F.3d 469, 478 (3d Cir. 2015) (due process requires
that detention without bail pursuant to 8 U.S.C. § 1226(c) be limited to a reasonable period of time
to further the goals of the detention statute.)
An appropriate Order follows.
Date: December 4, 2017
At Newark, New Jersey
