According to an article on  “Federal authorities are violating immigrant detainees’ constitutional rights by holding them for weeks at a detention facility in downtown Los Angeles that was designed as a short-term processing center, according to a lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court.”

The tide seems is turning with regards to our holding immigration agencies responsible for their conduct.  Through vehicles such as the filing of class-action lawsuits, conducting DHS investigations and by this administration setting a new tone when discussing immigration – we seem to be getting on the right track.  We did not get into this mess overnight so it may take some time for this positive shift to take effect.
