Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Presumption of no bail for illegal aliens charged with certain crimes. Provides that a judicial officer shall presume, subject to rebuttal, that no condition or combination of conditions will reasonably assure the appearance of the person or the safety of the public if (i) the person is currently charged with an offense listed in subsection A of 19.2-297.1 (acts of violence), subsection C of 17.1-805 (acts of violence), any offense under Chapter 4 ( 18.2-30 et seq.) of Title 18.2 (crimes against the person) except any offense under subsection A of 18.2-57.2, any felony offense under Article 1 ( 18.2-247 et seq.) of Chapter 7 of Title 18.2 (drug offenses), or any offense under Article 2 ( 18.2-266 et seq.), 4 ( 18.2-279 et seq.), 5 ( 18.2-288 et seq.), 6 ( 18.2-299 et seq.), or 7 ( 18.2-308 et seq.) of Chapter 7 of Title 18.2 (crimes involving health and safety), and (ii) the court determines that the person is illegally present in the United States. This presumption shall not exist unless the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement has guaranteed that, in all such cases in the Commonwealth, it will issue a detainer for the initiation of removal proceedings and agrees to reimburse for the cost of incarceration from the time of the issuance of the detainer. This bill incorporates SB 183, SB 733, and SB 152. This bill is identical to HB 440.
