Immigrant Detention Revisited

Several years ago I blogged on the deplorable conditions that detained immigrants must suffer while they are awaiting their hearings. This article from the L.A. Times indicates that conditions for detained immigrants have not improved under the Obama administration.

The U.S. is holding more than 30,000 immigrants are in custody today, which is up from 6,200 in 1992. If we are going to incarcerate these people, we need to treat them humanely. If we cannot treat them humanely, they should be released.
