Court Affirms Preliminary Injunction Requiring IJs to Consider a Detainee’s Financial Ability to Pay When Setting a Bond

The Ninth Circuit affirmed the district court’s order granting a preliminary injunction in favor of the plaintiffs, a class of noncitizens in removal proceedings who are detained under INA §236(a) in the Central District of California and are unable to afford the amount of bond set by immigration officials. Finding that the plaintiffs were likely to succeed on the merits of their due process claim, the court held that the district court did not abuse its discretion in granting a preliminary injunction requiring immigration officials when making bond determinations to, among other things, consider (1) financial ability to obtain bond and (2) alternative conditions of release.
