Anita Isaacs and Anne Preston: Such stories make it easy to see why Democrats pushed to shrink ICE's capacity to detain people. But cutting back on capacity will not solve the abuses of immigration detention. In fact it is more likely to make things worse

No doubt the Dems will blame Trump for the lack of beds in the near future, and hope that people forget they are the ones that refused to expropriate funds for them.

Republicans want bigger interment camps and Democrats don't. We shouldn't be putting refugees in intermenet camps.

Serious question: If someone is caught entering this country illegally, what should be done?

Due process, set free with a work permit.

To me this is reasonable ...

The unreasonable part is the ease of entry.

You can stop it ... but you'd rather claim abuses, than actually stop them ... because it makes you feel good about yourself.

Remember 70% of the women that make the journey are raped, but you ignore that.

Some children crossing the border aren't with their parents, but you ignore that.

Many die making the journey, but you ignore that.

You ignore the pain and suffering, but complain about "American" treatment.

Pathetic.

The correct words are dems want to decrease the number of illegal criminals ICE can hold at one time.

@#8 ... illegal criminals ...

The beds are used for the time until the immigrants can face a Judge in Court.

I had thought you might look to a strong principle in the American justice system, that a defendant is innocent until proven guilty.

And, gee...

Wasn't a significant increase in the number of Judges who can hear these immigrant cases one of the pillars of what the Democrats wanted in the bill passed by Congress?

So maybe by increasing the number of Judges, the wait time is decreased, and less beds are needed.

It almost sounds as if the Democrats have a minimal understanding of pooling theory... ( operationsroom.wordpress.com )

Yes, The Democrats want to decrease the number of families being separated and the number of people held in cages.

The Horror!!

What do the Republicans want?

More families separated, more children lost more people held in cages. More Pain and Suffering.

Good plan -----. I am sure that will work out well for you.

Or...and check this out...we could hire more Immigration Judges so we don't have a backlog of cases and people in those beds for long periods of time...

And look at that, it's part of the Democrat counter-plan to Trump's $5 billion wall.

Reality makes you look like an idiot yet again.

Enforcement against illegal immigrants is complicated, too expensive and hinders tourism. I believe in open borders and punishing employers who hire illegal immigrants by doubling the fine each time the crime is repeated.
