The issue here is not whether these students are illegal or not or they even are students. The issue here is fair treatment of a human being, if i put a collar on you how you would feel (like an animal).
But many of you have desensitized yourself because of tyrannical rule of your govt., that is why you don't feel anything. No offense intended, but i think half of America is under mind control.

According to the law they should be on a plane back to India, we haven't done that. The should be sitting in a detention center until this is all sorted out, potentially years from now when it goes to trial, we haven't done that either. We put the same bracelets on them that we put on people on house arrest. I think the government was very passive in their decision of how to deal with the situation.
