Even those accused of relatively minor infractions, such as overstaying a visa, can be held for months - or even years - fighting their cases without the benefit of rights and resources guaranteed to those accused of criminal acts.

Purgatory? I'm sure American prison in any of the states is Hell.

Great comment Billie C

Those whose only crime is nonviolent immigration violation should simply be sent home immediately and be told to get a green card or other valid pass to return. Those who commit other crimes while illegally invading teh USA should be tried, convicted, and sent to their nation of origin to serve their sentences.
