In the relatively short time since my original paper was published (Vasavda, 2016), there have been numerous administrative changes in the treatment of undocumented immigrants in the United States. Moreover, immigration seems to have grown into more of a hot-button subject than ever, with the president of the United States making it one of his signature issues. Given President Trump's anti-immigration rhetoric, it is unsurprising that the conditions in immigrant detention centers have not improved since the publication fo m y original paper. It is therefor worthwhile to reexamine the current landscape of immigrant detention in the Unites States through the lens of punishment theory.
