Illegal Immigrant Bond Fund Kicks Off Fundraising Campaign

Monday, August 11, 2008

SILVER SPRING, Md. — Illegal immigrants arrested in workplace raids can now access a fund to help them post bond.

The National Immigrant Bond Fund launched its national debut and fundraising campaign on Monday. Founder Bob Hildreth said Monday the goal is to raise $500,000.

Through the fund, illegal immigrants arrested in raids who do not have any outstanding criminal violations can apply for financial assistance. Churches, legal organizations or community groups help facilitate their requests. The fund provides half the bail money and immigrants must pony up the rest.

The fund has already been tapped into following a few raids, including one in Annapolis on June 30.

The fund was formalized three months ago. Hildreth says it's helped bail out about 100 people so far, and all of those cases are pending.

I didn't even know illegal imigrants could post bond :evil: . Wouldn't they be huge flight risks? So... if they pay some money to the gov't, they can basically go free into our country in which they were here illegaly and be expected to show up to a hearing (which will likely never happen). Is it just me, or is the gov't getting stupider?

I say that we use the bond to ship them home then they can return to a court along the border for their trial. If found guilty they loose the bond. If they dont show, they loose there bond, additionally, all personal property in the U.S. is confiscated as contraband. Last but not least, whom ever hired this illegal alien should be treated as a crack dealer, employer should be fined, jailed, and their property confiscated.
