If a person is here in the US illegally that in itself is a crime. If they commit a crime deportation is much kinder than other punishments. Why waste tax money incarcerating them instant deportation. Cheaper and better for the taxpayer.

I can see a student missing a deadline more worthy of consideration than a person who is already a criminal by coming across a border illegally.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
