My inmate has a bail but also an ICE hold, if he pays the bail can he get released?

My dad as a bail that was given to him he also has a ice hold on him why would the judge give him back the same bail amount if he has a immigration hold on him. I called the jail where he's being held at and they say they see no hold but when I call the bail bonds they say they see a hold what should I do?

The judge is not in the same jurisdiction as the agency that oversees ICE. The judge gave the bail based solely on the charges levied against your father but the ICE hold supersedes the bail - therefore the jail cannot release him, and the bondsman will not write a bond.
