Senator Lieberman plans on introducing the Secure and Safe Detention and Asylum Act as an amendment to the Senate immigration bill currently being debated on the Senate floor. The amendment would do the following:

    turned back


  • Mandating hearings on release determinations prevents
    unjust detentions


  • Legal Orientation Programs improve aliens' understanding
    and reduces costs>>


  • New standards would address poor conditions at detention
    facilities>>>


  • An Office of Detention Oversight will facilitate
    meaningful supervision>


  • Increased use of alternatives to prisons and jails offers
    humane options

    Leiberman, as usual, ahs his priorities straight. He'll get no credit for this, I expect, and I fear it may even be defeated (I am assuming, counterfactually, that the Bill ahs a good chance of passage) by groups, largely on his side, who just plain hate the man.
