ABSTRACT
The article reflects on the U.S. immigration policy. It cites the arguments raised by speakers at a Jesuit conference. One speaker pointed out that the number of undocumented immigrants and asylum seekers held in detention facilities has increased sharply over the past few years. Another speaker said that some of the newer statutes like the recently passed Real I.D. Act, are little more than attacks on undocumented immigrants in the guise of security measures.
