Kowalski is assigning his invalid personal emotions to these people. A true jail environment is more than walls, it's isolation from family and friends, and suspicions of the motives and actions of those around you, and occasional violence. The only thing that this jail has in common with a facitlity for criminals is the walls and architecture. ICE is correct, the children are with their families, not alone, they have a degree of freedom within the facility that a prisoner would never be allowed, they have some amusments, they are being educated, in spite of the pointlessness (short term stay) and they're not experiencing the horrors of his wildest imaginings. Stick to your day job, Kowalski, because you're no psychologist.
