Pro-Illegal Immigrant Group Offers $20-Million for Bonds

The legal services group RAICES says it's going to offer $20 million to post the bonds of all immigrant women separated from their children.

The San Antonio, Texas,-based group said in a statement Tuesday that it wanted the U.S. government to release from custody every parent detained under the Trump administration's zero-tolerance policy. At least 2,000 children separated from their parents are being held in government shelters.

More than 50 children under the age of 5 are expected to be reunited with their parents Tuesday, under a court-ordered deadline.

RAICES says immigration bonds typically cost between $5,000 and $10,000, though immigration authorities don't grant bonds to everyone they detain. It has raised more than $20 million through a Facebook fundraiser titled, "Reunite an immigrant parent with their child."
