If the Constitution only applies to US citizens, why does it matter if illegal immigrants are stored in dog cages?

    They're not, and we have human rights here in the US.

    The Constitution specifically says it applies to "everyone in America". It does not state citizens only. Years ago, The Supreme Court ruled that once a person was on American Soil, the constitution applies to them regardless of citizenship or not.

    That's why it is important for the Coast Guard to catch illegals before they reach American soil. If caught at sea, they get returned without any hearings or detention. Once the illegals are "Boots Dry" on American Soil, the constitution applies.

    We have agreements with the UN stating we will treat other humans humanly. That being said we can and should imprison them until we can send them back to their countries. I don't think their children should be separated from parents but I also don't think they should be put in adult prisons. Perhaps an internment camp like we did the Japanese during WW2

    If it doesn't bother or impact citizens, it doesn't matter.

    I have no problem with Obama keeping immigrants in cages.
