What Say To Bingo And Continental Breakfast For Detained Illegals?

Well, I suppose if we can serve such nice food at Gitmo to stone cold jihadis, we can do the same for illegal aliens. Of course, there are a heck of a lot more aliens than the jihadis

Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials are preparing to roll out a series of changes at several privately owned immigration detention centers, including relaxing some security measures for low-risk detainees and offering art classes, bingo and continental breakfast on the weekends.

The changes, detailed in an internal ICE e-mail obtained by the Houston Chronicle, were welcomed by immigrant advocates who have been waiting for the Obama administration to deliver on a promise made in August to overhaul the nation’s immigration detention system.

Aw, how nice. On your tax payer dime. They will even get to wear their own clothes, have super long visits, and have un-monitored access to the Internet and email. What say we just deport them?

The union leaders of ICE say that all these changes, in turning the detention centers from penal into holding facilities will put their guards and workers at risk. I suppose if they reduce or do away with pat-downs and searches, they would be correct.

Money quote from Beth Gibson, ICE’s senior counselor to Assistant Secretary John Morton and a leader of the detention reform effort

“When people come to our custody, we’re detaining them to effect their removal,” Gibson said. “It’s about deportation. It’s not about punishing people for a crime they committed.”

If we are detaining them, doesn’t that mean they, you know, broke a law?
