Mrs Von Holst who works with a refugee/asylum seeker support program in Tucson tells me that the bond is, more often than not $10,000 or more, which most of the refugees can’t post anyway. A few, but only a few can find a sponsor.
The point is, eliminating the bond entirely is simply emiseration for emiseration’s sake. But oh, yes, Bill Barr is a good, caring Catholic man. Bet he likes beer too.
