DWN Slams Inhofe Amendment to Senate Trafficking Bill As Massive and Unconstitutional Escalation of US Detention Program

Detention Watch Network Says Proposed Inhofe Amendment to the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act Would Threaten All US Non-Citizens with Indefinite & Random Detention
Statement from Mary Small, policy director of the Detention Watch Network, on Senator James Inhofe’s (R-OK) proposed amendment (Inhofe 275) to the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act:
“Simply put – Sen. Inhofe’s amendment is unconstitutional, a waste of taxpayer dollars and unfairly denies immigrants basic US civil rights – like a day in court. Inhofe’s amendment seeks to punish US immigrants who have been leading productive lives for years – in a cruel, and abusive use of federal policy – all without any meaningful judicial review.
Sen. Inhofe’s amendment would dramatically intensify and escalate immigrant detention nationwide, and grant DHS extraordinarily broad powers to detain non-citizens in the US for indefinite periods of time.
We urge Congress to reject Inhofe’s amendment and work to reform our broken immigration system that needlessly detains thousands of immigrants.”
