The RAICES Bond Program is a Texas-based bond fund that seeks to mitigate the harmful effects of and otherwise dismantle ICE detention.

The RAICES Bond Program started in 2014 to cover the release of mothers and children, then held in Family Detention Centers in Texas and Pennsylvania. In June 2018, the Program grew when a viral Facebook fundraiser inspired more than 500,000 individual donors who were furious at the government ripping families apart and the otherwise inhumane treatment of immigrants in the United States. Since then, we have responded to daily requests from people in detention, and our Bond Program covers people within the geographic scope of the state of Texas.

During workplace raids and the Zero Tolerance Family Separation of 2018, we have been on the ground. By building closer connections with participants, the Program gives people more resources and a greater degree of agency to navigate the complex immigration system and U.S. society more broadly. We believe that paying an individual’s bond is a short-term intervention to free someone from detention, while our long-term goal is ending the harmful practice of ICE detention.

We are proud members of the National Bail Fund Network, a bail and bond fund network seeking to end mass incarceration, including ICE detention.
