Racism in Immigration Law: Chapter 2 - Immigration Detention and Bond

Immigration Detention and Bond

This report provides an overview of the immigration detention and bond system and shares examples of how migrants and immigrants of color are treated differently under the United States immigration, specifically the detention and bond system. This report addresses the impact of the U.S. immigration detention system on immigrants of color by discussing (1) the origins of detention and how individuals are detained; (2) “bond” and the bond hearing process; (3) possible legal challenges to current rules involving detention and bond; and (4) possible changes to rulemaking and existing law that would pave a way for abolishing the current system of detention and bond.
