Par for the (Detention) Course

One might think that, in light of the massive increase in immigrant detentions over the last 15 years, the U.S. government at some point would get it right -- detain the right people under humae conditions for reasonable periods of time.  But, we could (as others do), blog day in and day out over government abuses in the detention of immigrants.  (See, for example, the story earlier this week on the report on immigrant detention by Texas Appleseed.).

Nina Bernstein provides us with the latest immigration detention-gone-haywire story:  "More than three dozen Haitian earthquake survivors were released from Florida immigration jails on Thursday after more than two months in the custody of Immigration and Customs Enforcement."
