Could someone explain this to me?


I just finished reading an article on MSNBC concerning immigrant detention centers. There are people (yes, they are still people…) being held there for years, even if they want to be sent back to their home countries. People who were brought here by their parents, kids mind you, are being held. Why? Perhaps it is because they are criminals, delinquents? Nope, there are many people being detained who have no criminal records. Hmmmm…maybe it’s simply cheaper to keep them in the center? Naw…according to the article, it costs $141 per night per detainee. So what is it? Waht is the point of keeping immigrants locked up? If they want to go home, let go home; if they want to stay, then they should go through the proper channels to gain legal status. Does anyone understand why this is not the way the immigrant situation is handled? Explain it to me…like I’m a 4 year old…
