Considering that over 90% of the illegal aliens who have been released while given a date to show up in front of an immigration judge don't show up, it's pretty clear that all illegal aliens should be considered a flight risk.
Then you have the less than 10% who do show up in court and are ordered to be deported are again released into society to take care of business before leaving the country but again 90% don't leave the country and go in to hiding.
. A child shall not be placed in a secure facility absent a determination that the child poses a danger to self or others or has been charged with having committed a criminal offense.
Flight Risk Law & Legal Definition
>"Flight risk is a term that is used by a court to describe a person or defendant who is likely to flee the country/state/area to avoid criminal prosecution. Courts consider the flight risk factor while deciding whether or not to grant bond to a defendant. This factor is considered while deciding the bond amount also. Courts have the discretion to set higher bail amount for flight risks."<

But instead of traveling over a thousand miles why not start the procedure back in their own home country and going to the U.S. Embassy ???
Probably because they don't have a legitimate case.
This invasion surge is Obama's own doing. First he refused to enforce our immigration laws.
Then he refused to secure our borders but lied to Congress and the American people declaring that our borders were secured.
Then he ignored the law that only Congress can write our immigration laws and misused his Executive powers and created his own "Dream Act" which set off the surge from Central America to El Norte with the message that once you make it across the border, Obama will see that you are not deported.
Now Obama wants me, you and those Americans who actually pay taxes to fork out 3.7 billion dollars so these illegals can be fed Gringo burritos, be given new underware and be released in to society and the taxpayers will pay for their transportation to where ever they want to go.
Sarah Palin is right, time for articles of impeachment.
Obama just isn't incompetent but is derelict in his duties of POTUS and CnC.
A ****ing community organizer as POTUS ???
Detention facilities have been underfunded for years. People are dying in the deserts trying to get into the US. Limits on immigration are arbitrary and poorly designed.Immigration law, as it exists now IS humane. Otherwise there would be no provisions as there are for asylum, refugees or humanitarian efforts (see Haiti for one).
Oh, and that asylum/refugee/humanitarian reasons? That's the stuff conservatives are howling about. A huge swath of this year's immigrants are fleeing disastrous conditions in Honduras and El Salvador, which are trying to escape horrendous crime rates (Honduras has the #1 murder rate in the world) and gang violence.
Obama isn't talking of "letting them walk." The OP is kvetching about ICE moving people to "destinations" -- which are ICE holding facilities -- per the way the law is actually written. He asked Congress for $2 billion in additional funding to deal with this situation. And of course, blaming any single political leader for something this complex and long-term is sheer partisan nonsense.When he talks of letting them walk, yes, yes he is. "Detainees" in this context means DETAINED UNTIL DEPORTATION.
Congress should tell him no and make it clear the bill is about human trafficking, and this isn't that.
