Another let an informant smuggle in a group of illegal immigrants. And in a third case, an agent was investigated for soliciting sex from a witness in a marriage fraud case”
SOME DETAINEES DRUGGED FOR DEPORTATION - IMMIGRANTS SEDATED WITHOUT MEDICAL REASON
by Amy Goldstein and Dana Priest | Washington Post Staff Writers
The U.S. government has injected hundreds of foreigners it has deported with dangerous psychotropic drugs against their will to keep them sedated during the trip back to their home country, according to medical records, internal documents and interviews with people who have been drugged.
UNJUSTIFIED IMMIGRATION DETENTION REACHES NEW LOWS
A Wednesday New York Times article portrayed the anguish of 30 Haitians that were evacuated from the earthquake in January, only to be greeted by a jail cell upon their arrival to the U.S. One earthquake survivor, Jackson, languished in jail for over two months after being pulled out from beneath the rubble of his destroyed home in Haiti. The article gives voice to yet another story of the inhumane and unnecessary immigration detention system that incarcerates some 30,000 noncitizens daily.
After the New York Times exposed the story, Jackson and the other earthquake survivors were released yesterday, demonstrating just how pointless their incarceration was in the first place.

ICE RELEASES TWO IMMIGRANTS AFTER COURT FINDS THEIR PROLONGED MANDATORY DETENTION ILLIEGAL
March 26, 2010
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CONTACT: (212) 549-2666; firstname.lastname@example.org
HARRISBURG, PA – Immigration and Customs and Enforcement released two immigrants who had been subjected to prolonged immigration detention while pursuing legal challenges to deportation after a court ruled that their continued detention without bond hearings was unlawful. Rather than proceed with bond hearings for the detainees, the government released Elliot Grenade, a lawful permanent resident from Trinidad and Tobago, and Alexander Alli, a lawful permanent resident from Ghana, without requiring them to post any bail – Alli under minimal reporting requirements and Grenade under electronic monitoring. The two men are represented by the American Civil Liberties Union, the ACLU of Pennsylvania and Pepper Hamilton LLP.
AND FOR ANY IDIOTS STILL TRYING TO FABRICATE EXCUSES? HERE'S ICE'S OWN VERSION OF NEEDED CHANGES
•ICE should establish a system of Immigration Detention with the requisite management tools and informational systems to detain and supervise aliens in a setting consistent with assessed risk. ICE should provide programs to the detained population commensurate with assessed need and create capacity within the organization to assess and improve detention operations.
•In coordination with stakeholders, ICE should develop a new set of standards, assessments, and classification tools to inform care, custody restrictions, privileges, programs, and delivery of services consistent with risk level and medical care needs of the population. ICE should expand access to legal materials and counsel, visitation, and religious practice. ICE should also develop unique provisions for serving special populations such as women, families, and asylum seekers.
•ICE should establish a well-managed medical care system, with comprehensive initial assessments to inform housing assignments and ongoing care management. ICE should establish clear standards of care for detainees and monitor conditions systematically.
•ICE should provide federal oversight of key detention operations and track performance and outcomes. It should place expert federal officials on-site to oversee detention operations, to intercede as necessary, and to ensure that there are appropriate grievance and disciplinary processes.
AND FOR MJT, SO HE CAN LEARN WHAT DETENTION MEANS?
"ICE does not have authority to detain aliens for criminal violations. That authority lies exclusively with the Department of Justice, subject to review of the federal courts. For instance, although many aliens who enter illegally have committed a misdemeanor criminal offense in violation of 8 U.S.C. 1325, ICE does not have authority to detain aliens for that criminal violation while criminal proceedings are pending. Instead, the Department of Justice holds that authority. Although ICE has no criminal detention authority, ICE has administrative authority pursuant to the Immigration and Nationality Act to detain aliens during the removal process.2 Immigration proceedings are civil proceedings and immigration detention is not punishment. Zadvydas v. Davis, 533 U.S. 678, 609 (2001). Conditions of confinement in immigration detention may change based upon a detainee’s criminal and immigration record."
"Rather than fill beds with individuals like Jackson or Jerry, the administration should stop its overreliance on costly and unnecessary incarceration and mandate procedures to prevent unjustified detention."
