Why stop at 6 languages? Thats discriminatory.
Who is violating their rights in the first place? What about our rights? Our rights are being violated!!

Because illegals go into dedicated lockups for immigration violations, and because they are often held there for long periods of time, this makes sense.
Because illegals go to separate facilities, there would be no legal US citizens incarcerated around to report violations

Governments, state, local, and federal always decide "which secondary languages to use?" - They probably picked the six most common and did that.

The government probably determined that whichever ones after those six that have very few/insignificant speakers.

http://judiciary.house.gov/hearings/...2010262011.pdf says that it's in six languages, but doesn't specify the other four.
* Arabic is commonly spoken throughout several major metropolitan areas. I would not be surprised if it was one of them.

Governments make this decision all the time, All American. For instance Houston ISD has its website in three languages. Are there people speaking other languages in HISD? Yes. But HISD decided that there weren't enough of them to translate its entire website in those languages. Governments do language surveys of their populations to determine the most common languages, and then they decide to provide services in the most common languages.

And are you asking for proof of "Because illegals go to separate facilities, there would be no legal US citizens incarcerated around to report violations"? ICE operates its own detention facilities! http://www.ice.gov/detention-facilities/

Lots of detention centers in the list belong to private prisons or county Mira Loma is managed by LA County Sheriff and the one in AZ is managed by CCA, a private prison contractor plus there are several more not owned by ICE
ICE has limited detention facilities it owns most are contracted out
ICE holds detainees in lots of facilities including county jails as well as private prisons like CCA Wackenhut In fact majority of aliens are held in private prisons. On an avg max aliens are held for 90 days unless they have aggravated felony and are fighting their case Even people ordered deported and not removed after 90 days of deportation are subjected to release with order of supervision They can also apply for a work ID from ICE till they can be removed

Where is the toll free number I can call and tell this administration I am sick of being robbed every 2 weeks when I get paid so my tax dollars can be used to give illegals a free ride?

The government doesn't care about us dear.

We are just good enough to make money and pay for their free ride.
