DHS/USICE RIN: 1653-AA67 Publication ID: Spring 2020 
Title: Procedures and Standards for Declining Surety Immigration Bonds and Administrative Appeal Requirement for Breaches 

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is establishing standards and procedures ICE will follow before making a determination to stop accepting immigration bonds posted by a surety company that has been certified to issue bonds by the Department of the Treasury when the company does not cure deficient performance. Treasury administers the Federal corporate surety program and, in its current regulations, allows agencies to prescribe "for cause” standards and procedures for declining to accept new bonds from Treasury-certified sureties. ICE will also require surety companies seeking to overturn a breach determination to file an administrative appeal raising all legal and factual defenses.
