ICE’s detention center budget last year was close to $3 billion. Immigration court costs reached $440 million. That’s a lot of money for taxpayers to pay to hear about an unfair, abusive, inhumane system that we wouldn’t need without policies that give immigrants a great excuse to cross our scantily protected border. Instead of questioning the ethics of the detention system we should question why we lure people here only to lock them up because they never got permission. That's a Democratic Party problem and it’s not going to go away any time soon.
