Detained Asylum Seekers Turning to Hunger Strikes, Protests as Their Cases Linger
By Alexandra Villarreal

This spring, Attorney General William Barr attempted to eliminate bond hearings for asylum seekers, but a judge blocked the policy change nationwide. That decision is under review by the ninth circuit. Meanwhile, bond amounts have been on the rise for the last decade -- even before Trump took office. The median bond in fiscal year 2019 was $8,000, up from $5,000 in 2009, according to Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC).
