There are much cheaper and more humane ways for the U.S. government to keep tabs on asylum seekers while they are awaiting trial. Long-term incarceration violates asylum-seekers' human rights. In addition, it has not proven to be an effective deterrent against mass migration from places where people feel threatened on a daily basis.
