Green cards, (USCIS Form I-551), are for all intents and purposes, part of the immigration process.

The holder has been granted, permission, to live, work and stay in the United States of America. They are citizens of the country. This would include say a spouse or a child who is in the process of becoming a full citizen of the country. They cannot simply go home, as so many would want, as they have no home, having given up everything to return to the USA.

Why were these people detained, even not allowing their lawyers to have access to them, or even members of congress from actually visiting them?

Green card holders ARE NOT citizens of the US, but rather a permanent resident. There IS a difference. It is a step towards naturalization as a citizen. You need to have a green card for 5 years before you can apply for naturalization.

Path to Citizenship USCIS.gov

No one that is not a US citizen has a right to be here especially in light of this
LEGAL EO.

So under that logic, then it puts all at risk for the same treatment as is being given. These people, those who hold green cards, they have given up everything to move to here, giving up all of their homeland. They have no home, yet we would treat them like trash, even though throughout the very process to become a us citizen. That would require vetting and should not be given this kind of grief.

If a person is asked to pay taxes and obey the laws of the country, like those who are holders of Green Cards, then they should be afforded some of the same rights and protections that the rest of those who live here are. Did you know, that a male who holds a green card, at the age of 18 to 25 are expected to sigh up for selective service, and can be drafted into the military, if they have no protections, when why should they even consider defending a place they would call home?

And this gets even far worse, if you look at it, what about those who willingly served in the US Armed Forces, could be subject to deportation, should we now treat people who were willing to put their lives on the line like trash? How about their families, while the soldiers are out fighting, they deport a soldiers wife and child, is that correct as well?

While the concept may have some basis, however, the way it was carried out and implemented very poorly.
