Disabled Immigration Detainees Face Deportation

As someone who works closely with people suffering from schizophrenia I found this New York Time article quite disturbing. It seems "The Great Confinement" of the seventeenth century has returned in the twenty-first century as "The Great Deportation." In both cases the issue is the failure of governments to recognize the significance of mental disability. It is sad that the knowledge acquired over the last three plus centuries hasn't had more influence on power.
