Immigration Detention System
AILA hails the Obama Administration’s efforts to repair the “haunted” removal center system. DHS would merge many prisoners in service with conditions that reflect their status as lawful, provide sound medical care and set-up more focused mistake of custody centers. The U.S. immigration detention endangers human lives and makes a mockery of due process. The DHS manages the largest system in the world and spends more on immigration enforcement than on all other federal enforcement agencies combined. A crisis of mass control in custody exists in the United States, which is home to the world’s largest immigration detention system.
