Time for ICE to clean up the deportation mess

The pressure is building on the Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE) to clean up its act in the case of detention and deportation.

As I wrote in a previous blog post, there are some horrendous examples of injustice to detained immigrants--both undocumented and lawfully here--in the custody of ICE. Not only have those held for minor infractions been deported, but ICE has not hesitated to hold indefinitely those the courts had determined mentally incompetent.
