People With No Names: The Undocumented: # 113

This 11" x 14" oil on canvas "Ce n'est pas un animaux".  (Please see, "ce n'est pas un pipe" by Magritte, surrealism)  On Sunday March 24, 2013 there was a front page article about immigrants being held in solitary confinement.  The U.S. has come under sharp criticism at home and abroad for relying on solitary confinement in its prisons more than any other democratic nation in the world.  This practice is particularly "startling because these detainees are being held on civil, not criminal charges.  As such, they are not supposed to be punished: they are simply confined to ensure that they appear for administrative hearings." At the bottom of the article is a picture of a chain link 6' x6' cell "where immigrant detainees may get an hour to pace".
