When illegal aliens come into the United States and get detained by Border Patrol, they shouldn’t exactly expect for things to be as comfortable as sitting in your living room eating a hamburger.
It’s like this documentary that I watched on Ted Bundy where they had footage of Bundy in the courtroom during a trial where he was openly complaining to the judge that he had been served the same thing every day for a week for lunch or something like that.
My heart absolutely bled for Bundy at that point and I shed several tears of sarcasm for him having to eat the same thing over and over.
When you really get down to it the situation with illegals that are being detained at the border right now is somewhat similar.
If you don’t like the conditions where you are being held after crossing into the United States illegally, maybe you shouldn’t have crossed into the country illegally.

Nearly a dozen illegal immigrants at an Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility in Texas are refusing to eat as part of a hunger strike against alleged verbal abuse by guards, The Associated Press reported.
ICE officials confirmed to the AP that 11 detainees at the El Paso Processing Center have refused to eat at least nine consecutive meals.
Detainees and others connected with those inside the facility say roughly 30 men are actively participating in the hunger strike.
Officials at the El Paso facility have inserted nasal tubes into six detainees to force feed them and keep them alive.
Hunger strikes at ICE facilities are scarce and situations where a court order is obtained to force feed a detainee is almost unheard of, an ICE official told the AP.
“Nine of the 11 detainees missed their ninth consecutive meal, triggering hunger strike protocols, in late December and early January,” ICE spokeswoman Dani Bennett said in a statement, according to CNN.
ICE did not comment on the motivation for the hunger strike, the El Paso Times reported.
