When a suspected illegal appears before an immigration judge, bail is usually set around $5000.

Huge rise seen in ICE cases released on bail - Houston Chronicle

Immigration judges and agents by law must set bail amounts of at least $1,500, but have wide leeway on deciding how much more to ask. The bails of the 55,546 individuals released on bond in 2011 averaged $5,162, according to statistics from the federal agency. ICE's cash bond account balance as of Feb. 1 was $674 million.]
If the illegal has a job that's not very much - couple of months pay. The illegal just pays the bail and takes off for another part of america. Make it more like $50,000 or they sit in jail.

Given an ILLEGAL is not a citizen there should be NO bail.

You don't understand the problem. They usually don't admit they are illegal so maybe they are citizens and deserve their day in court. But bail has to be set high enough so they don't just skip town and go to some other city .
