Two immigrant detention centers in Illinois and another in Kentucky have persistently violated the human rights of inmates by denying access to legal counsel, providing inadequate medical care and serving few hot meals, according to a report released Monday by advocacy groups.

These charges are not true, at least at Tri County. They get three hot meals each day that meet federal guidelines for nutrition. There is nursing staff there 24 hours each day that see to their every need. They are taken out for dental and optician needs. They have 24 hour phone access and are able to reach their embassys or immigration whenever they please. If they get transferred to a different facility, they are very quickly begging to come back because they prefer Tri County to many other detention centers. They say that it's like a country club compared to other facilities.
All this crap was stirred up by Chicago based "Hug a Thugs".
Do not make the mistake of thinking all these detainees are poor, under privileged dirt farmers. Every one of them has broken the law to some degree to be held there. They are usually not discovered to be illlegal aliens until they get a DUI, get charged with domestic violence, or break another law. Many of them were released after serving time in a federal prison for major crimes and are held there waiting for their ride home.
If they truly wanted to live in our Country, they would have done it the right way, legally. They come here to earn money and take advantage of our many rights, while avoiding paying their fair share. The easier you make it for them to be here, the more criminals you invite to be your neighbors. Obama wants them out in time to vote him in for another term. He doesn't care about what the average American citizen wants.

Maybe this explains why employees don't seem to stay there very long
