"Immigration detention is not supposed to be punishment....."
Why not,I ask? They are law breakers. They must know what awaits them. According to this article we have to give illegal aliens special treatment and now even more special for transgender illegal aliens. God help us all,stupidity abounds!

Illegal entry is a federal misdemeanor crime punishable by fines and six months in prison. Law. Fact.

The USA's immigration system is not broken. It is simply not enforced by the treasonous Obamination administration in Washington DC.

The office of the President is broken - usurped by someone who refuses to obey the laws of our country and who never intended to keep his oath of office.
Right On

An illegal immigrant has the right to an attorney to make his or her status legal! He or she has the right, so you need to SHUT UP!

That's done BEFORE entering OUR country illegally, NOT after! You're another one who clearly doesn't understand the word illegal. Refer to Black's Law Dictionary and bone up on it will you?

Illegal aliens are not immigrants. Immigrants have immigration status. Illegal aliens have only criminal status. Illegal aliens have no rights in the USA except the right of due process in the form of a deportation hearing. If an illegal aliens wants to hire an attorney in an attempt to con the immigration court system, he has to pay for it himself. That isn't a right, that's commerce.

I don't have to shut up. I have the right of free speech. I'm an American citizen. Read the laws, then FO.
