Lots of authorities in Texas sued for not giving Bond


The Dallas Morning News reports that a federal civil rights suit was filed yesterday by 16 plaintiffs against Dallas County and Sheriff Lupe Valdez over bonds and the use of immigration holds requested by ICE. The suit states: “The moving force for this claim is Dallas County’s practice of refusing immediate release on bond to individuals with immigration holds by (i) refusing to allow bond for those with immigration holds, and (ii) honoring ICE requests to detain individuals subject to an immigration hold, even after those individuals are otherwise cleared for release, in violation of Texas statutes, the Texas Constitution, and/or the United States Constitution.”
