Immigration and Customs Enforcement has collected nearly $1 billion in bail bonds

"Hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants have paid $977 million in bail bonds to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement over the past six years — allowing them to go free until their deportation cases are decided.

The money reflects a roughly threefold increase in the number of people granted bond since 2006, enabling at least 209,163 potential deportees to avoid detention and go on with their lives as they await their legal fate, according to ICE data obtained by the Houston Chronicle."
