A September 20, 2001 Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) interim rule amends 8 CFR 287.3(d) to increase the period of time after an alien's arrest within which the Service must make a determination whether the alien will be continued in custody or released on bond or recognizance and whether to issue a notice to appear and warrant of arrest. The rule increases the period to 48 hourse (it had been 24 hours), and gives INS the discretion to hold the alien longer "in the event of an emergency or other extraordinary circumstances."
