Congress: Protect the rights of detained immigrants

The rights of immigrants do not disappear once they enter an immigration prison.

It is imperative that their rights be respected.

Congress should pass the Detention Oversight Not Expansion (DONE) Act and the Dignity for Detained Immigrants Act.

These acts would require the DHS Office of Inspector General to conduct announced inspections of all immigration prisons to ensure compliance with national standards. A report of the inspections' findings would be submitted to Congress. The Done legislation would require the DHS secretary to submit a plan to Congress to cut the number of detention beds by 50 percent.
