What is happening?

The experience of an icelandic woman in the USA:

…they were treating me like a very dangerous criminal. Soon thereafter I was removed from the cubicle and two armed guards placed me up against a wall. A chain was fastened around my waist and I was handcuffed to the chain. Then my legs were placed in chains. I asked for permission to make a telephone call but they refused. So secured, I was taken from the airport terminal in full sight of everybody. I have seldom felt so bad…

There’s more.

Is this a failure of our system at the institution of draconian immigration policies, or the abuse of power by megalomaniac immigration workers? Either way, why in the hell is this allowed to happen?
