    Since when is paying for your room and board considered forced labor. All inmates should have to clean the facility and do whatever work is needed for no pay. Cost a lot of money to house these people.

      These places are not Holiday Inns. They are private corporate detention centers, they type of which the Department of Justice has been divorcing itself from due to the conditions there.

      Unlike a federal or state facility with a properly trained staff and complete maintenance departments, these places are not exactly manned by the most professional staffs around. Effectively, you are hiring people who probably couldn’t qualify for a job flipping burgers at McDonalds to act as guards for people waiting to be deported. These folks came her to find work, were arrested for doing so, and are now being made to work (which they were arrested for in the first place) under threat of enforced isolation.

      While the previous administration was divorcing themselves from private contractors like this, the current administration is welcoming them back with open arms. Every detainee (might as well say “prisoner” because that is what they really are) that can be made to do a job means that is one less employee the company has to hire, meaning they have more profits in their pockets at the end of the day.

      I am not in favor of coddling these folks. Don’t get me wrong. But the only reason these folks are not getting hearings sooner is because the system is so overburdened it is pathetic. The “System” needs more magistrates to determine the proper status of most of these folks, then a more efficient way to send them back home. Many of these folks have been held for way more than a year waiting for their hearings!
