Feds Reducing Reliance on Immigration Detention?

Another quick link here to an article about the President's recent budget request.  In it, he seeks funding for about 1,200 less beds for immigration detainees than in FY2012, and a increase of nearly $40 for initiatives that promote alternatives to incarceration.  Hopefully this signals the beginning of our government weaning itself off its addiction to locking up immigrants.
