BREAKING: Illegals SUE DHS Over Overcrowding in Detention Facilities

According to new reports, a group of seven illegal aliens are suing the Department of Homeland Security due to conditions in Border Patrol detention facilities.

The migrants also claim to have not been given access to adequate legal representation, and allege that the conditions in the overcrowded facilities are “dangerous and inhumane.”

Now, the illegals are suing, claiming they want to be released on bond.

Over the past several months, illegal immigration at the US-Mexico border has surged dramatically, prompting law enforcement officials to repeatedly seek help from lawmakers.

From Townhall:

The crisis along America’s southern border has continued to exasperate Border Patrol agents in the field and President Donald Trump, who is attempting to put an end to the flood of illegal aliens. Seven illegal aliens from Central American countries are suing the Department of Homeland Security because of overcrowding in Border Patrol facilities and the lack of access to legal representation, The Monitor reported.

The lawsuit was brought about by:

• Jairo Alexander Gonzalez Recinos – El Salvador
• Gerardo Henrique Herrera Rivera – El Salvador
• Kevin Eduardo Rizzo Ruano – Guatemala
• Jonathan Fernando Beltran Rizzo – Guatemala
• Enerly Melitza Ramos – Guatemala
• Karen Vanessa Borjas Zuniga – Honduras
• Julia Elizabeth Molina Lopez – Honduras

According to the lawsuit, the illegal aliens want themselves, as well as others in the facilities, to be released on bond.

“Petitioners were apprehended in mid-May at or near the U.S. Border with Mexico and subsequently detained. Once apprehended, such persons are often detained for extended periods of time — on information and belief, up to six weeks — in overcrowded holding cells, with inadequate food, water, and sanitation facilities, where attorneys are not allowed to visit. The conditions in these holding cells are dangerous and inhumane,” the lawsuit stated.

The number of illegal aliens flocking to the United States’ southern border has overwhelmed Border Patrol resources. Instead of seeking asylum, like they have long touted, illegal aliens, primarily from Central America, now look for a Border Patrol agent, say they want to see an immigration judge and turn themselves in. They do this because they know of catch-and-release. They know the number of people flocking to the southern border has overwhelmed America’s immigration system. Border Patrol agents are having to leave the actual border to help process those who have simply walked across the border.

The lawsuit claimed the seven illegal aliens were detained at the Brownsville, Texas facility for more than five days and, during that time period, they were treated inhumanely. One of the biggest issues is the inhumane conditions. Most of the facilities are short-term processing and holding centers, meaning they don’t have showers, beds or adequate bathroom facilities. The illegal aliens have now coined the facilities as “hieleras,” the Spanish word for freezers, because the facilities are small, concrete facilities with metal benches.

The conditions are something that Border Patrol agents have continually brought up. It was also one of the driving forces behind the immigration crisis in Murrieta, California back in 2014, where illegal aliens were being flown in from Texas and dumped at a short-term drug processing facility.

The lawsuit also stated that detainees were receiving one sandwich a day and haven’t showered during their entire incarceration. Some have been held as long as 40 days.

“They have been packed into overcrowded facilities and detained for weeks without adequate food and water, sanitation facilities, or access to counsel,” one lawsuit stated. “Attorneys are not allowed to visit individuals detained at these facilities, so counsel have been unable to communicate directly with them, or obtain their signatures on G-28s, the forms required for counsel to be recognized as their attorneys by DHS.”

The argument being made is that the illegal aliens have failed to receive basic necessities so they’ve signed away their rights without knowing what exactly it is they’re signing.

“Some detainees at these facilities have been so deprived of basic necessities that they have signed documents, the contents of which they are unaware, (but which most likely waive their rights under the Immigration and Nationality Act), involuntarily, and without adequate screening regarding their fears of returning to their native countries and means of learning about potential lawful means of avoiding prompt removal,” the lawsuit stated. “Class members are unable to receive visits from legal counsel, are detained without adequate food, water, sleeping and sanitation facilities, and are often forced or coerced into signing documents, the contents of which they may be unaware, but which may relate to their voluntary departure or removal from the United States.”

The attorneys in the case want a federal judge to place an injunction against Border Patrol. If the judge agrees, the federal agency would have to release anyone who has been held more than 72 hours, even if they don’t have an electronic monitoring device.

If the conditions are so bad, offer to take them home. If they stay, they are accepting the conditions.

Only in America can someone enter the country illegally and then sue that country because they think their detention conditions aren’t up to their standards. What a crock of horse dung. Send them back across the border and make sure their names and every one in their family are permanently forbidden to ever be allowed in to this great country.

That’s been my thoughts from the beginning. Anyone crawling under fences, out of sewers, over barriers — take their names and permanently forbid them to ever enter again. If this was done – they would go through the U.S. Embassies in their own country if they are serious.

None of which should have been allowed into this country since they passed multiple countries on their way here. But, this is how they repay the country that did let them in…immediately begin attacking via the legal system. Nope. Pack ’em up and send ’em back.

Does any other country allow illegal entry aliens to sue them?

Non-citizens do not have legal standing to bring suit. Particularly if they entered illegally.
Now, GTFO!

Lawbreakers have little if any rights outside of their charges. these people are detained for breaking the law.

So if a legal citizen relocates to a sanctuary city, do we get the same “rights” as the illegals? I would love free healthcare and the other enticing amenities.

  The suit should be thrown out with prejudice.

  Illegal foreign invaders should not, under any circumstances, be recognized as having ay standing to sue our government over any issue, especially over issues which these invaders have, themselves caused by invading our country.

How many showers do they take before they get here while they are in the so-called dessert? There is running water I”m sure in the building and I’m sure there are bathrooms–many hard working American taxpayers have to take a few sponge baths within their life times–and these people are thieves and invaders–and want better treatment. Maybe its time they really walk back across the border–and maybe its time we the people start suing these Countries these people are coming from and demanding no more tax money will go to these Countries or these illegals
