Help us raise $10,000 to secure $20,000 for Freedom for Immigrants!
This is an exciting opportunity for you to double your donation to our National Bond Fund! A generous donor has agreed to match your donation up to $10,000 and help us free more individuals and families from ICE detention.
There is no upper limit for immigration bonds, but Freedom for Immigrants has documented immigration bonds ranging from $1,500 to $250,000 with a median of $7,500.
Without the ability to pay a bond, longtime lawful permanent residents, asylum seekers and undocumented immigrants who may be eligible for relief from deportation are forced to languish in immigration detention while they fight their immigration case. This pushes families into poverty and creates tremendous emotional strain for both parents and children.
Immigrants have lost housing, jobs, small businesses and custody of children as a result of not being able to pay a bond. So many people in immigration detention are simply in need of a loan that may be recycled to help someone else win their freedom on bond in the future.
Once released from ICE detention, individuals and families are eight times more likely to win their case. They also have a fighting chance to reunite with their children, some of whom are being detained at child detention facilities.
If you and just 5 friends or colleagues each donate $250, together you will have raised the minimum bond of $1,500 and will have given someone their freedom from ICE detention!
Your donation is tax-deductible, and eligible to be matched by most employer match programs (so you could triple your donation)!
