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.

they need to ship them out faster and keep conditions clean for the ones waiting.

Great comment Billie C
They are probably quite happy in American prisons getting their stories ready the same as UK

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.
