Detained Indian And Chinese Immigrants Are More Likely To Be Released On Bond Than Mexicans, Central Americans
By Elizabeth Trovall

In Texas courts, detained Indian and Chinese immigrants get out on bond around 80 percent of the time, according to new data compiled by Syracuse University. By comparison, judges granted bond to just over half of detained Mexican immigrants. One reason that could account for the difference is criminal history. In Texas courts, immigrants from China and India also pay several thousand dollars more than Mexicans to be released from immigrant detention. Data provided by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University showed that people from large Asian countries paid some of the highest bond rates.
