No problem with keeping them in jail while the case is heard and moved to trial, or dismissed. I would like to see people who have come, and committed a crime, in a jail in Arizona growing tomatoes for a year before they go home.

Once at home, they cannot be returned legally or otherwise.

I believe the current policy is in place because the cost of holding them is terriably high. We need a lot more detention space for a while and we don't have it.
