Immigrant Detentions

Amnesty International on immigration.

"No one comes close to detaining the amount of people that the United States does," she said. "I don't know of another country that detains hundreds of thousands of people as a normal policy every year."


According to the report, there were about 12 million illegal immigrants living in the United States as of January 2007. The top five countries of origin were Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, the Philippines and China.

Maybe if we SECURED THE BORDER or something silly like that, we wouldn't be detaining so many.
