Secret ICE Castles

A list of 186 previously-secret Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) sub-field offices has been uncovered. The list reveals the locations into which an unknown number of migrant workers and other non-citizens have been “disappeared.

I remember growing up and hearing the horror stories of supposed communist states and dictators with their secret prisons and indefinite detention without trial. We always thought "how could the people be so stupid to stand for that?!" It was always positioned with knowing that our USA didn't do such things. I guess no matter how many people were assassinated or railroaded in prison on trumped up charges, the USA, at least, liked to keep up appearances.
It is an interesting psychological shift for a government to openly operate secret prisons, hold people without trials, and assasinate.
