When in a society a mother of six children is deported for driving her children to school without a license, when she is ineligible to get one, separating her from her husband and her children, it constitutes cruel and unusual punishment. Hundreds of desperate immigrants are now dying while trying to circumvent the fence in the Southwest, some most likely like this mother, who want to join their families once again.

Then in the news Saturday a prisoner just died of cancer. See Herman Wallace, Held 41 Years in Solitary. He was kept in solitary confinement for over 40 years!
