The ACLU of Colorado says a bail bonds bill targeting illegal immigrants interferes with the constitutional rights of all Coloradans. Colorado State Rep. Mark Barker, R-Colorado Springs, said his bill creates a level playing field.
If a new bill is passed, anyone arrested who is suspected of being in the country illegally may have a very hard time getting a bond. The bill would remove current exemptions that allow bail bond agents to reclaim their bond money if an immigrant is found to be illegally in the country and is deported.
