Yes, that is correct, ICE has 48 hours to pick him up. If they do not do so, the county jail must release him or he could sue them for false imprisonment.
Yes. But for example, let's say you post the bond and in your county, the process is that the prisoner is released 4 hours after the bond is posted to allow for processing time unless it is posted on a Saturday, then it would be 4 hours starting on Monday. This is just an example, I have no idea what it is in your county. Then if you post bond at 8am on Friday, he should be released at 12pm on Friday and the 48 hours begins at 12pm on Friday. Of if you post bond on Saturday, then he would normally be released maybe at 12pm on Monday and then the 48 hours start then, at least in my example.
So you would need to find out what it is in your county as I do not know.
