I see the communists continue this b.s. We have zero facilities that come close to Mexico's Santa Martha Prison. In the illegals don't like their living situations, plead guilty and ask to be sent home!

The ACLU is a bunch of IDIOTS! Anyone can ask ANY prisoner (illegal alien or American citizen) if they "like" it in prison and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to guess what the answer would be.....

locking them up in a center like one others would face in their homelands should be the ticket. they should not be treated any batter than what their homelands treat criminals there.after all we cater to their wims,may as well make them feel at home in lock up.

This is the USA. We treat all persons accused of a crime the same. If we didn't then we would be no better then those who think incorrectly like you.

Prison and an immigration detention center are not exactly the same thing. I recommend that you read up on the difference before ranting away.

how they need to be treated is as terrorists out to destroy the country,which is all they are and have ever done.

they are more of an enemy than anything else they just do not blow stuff up yet.

TRA, you are correct! We have guaranteed rights for ALL people, not just citizens. Most of the people who disagree tend to be racists and bigots.

You are right, they are different. In order to make them EQUAL, you would have to supply the US CITIZEN prisoners with all the perks that the illegals get!

4 people per bedroom and each room with a private bath- Add TV, phone, internet access, a gym with weight-lifting equipment, a soccer field, indoor and outdoor basketball courts and sand and nets for beach volleyball, 117 pay phones, a law library, microwaves, board games and washers and dryers. They can wander around the complex at will and there are NO lights out. Plus they do not have to work, they can lounge around all day watching their TV on the US taxpayer's dime.

So, yeah, I can understand your argument that they aren't the same. The ACLU needs to stop pandering to illegals and start working for American citizens!

Janet keeps telling Americans the border is safe and that she has deported 400,000 in last year.
Everyone knows she cant tell the truth and we KNOW the border is not safe and the cartels are now in big business bringing in smuggling operations.
5 million/year deportations would seriously improve the situation in all states. If we enforce the existing laws then the illegals will leave voluntarily. Quit allowing employers to find loopholes to employ illegals.
Keep deporting.
