Hector Sanchez, a Cuban citizen, is currently confined in the United States Penitentiary at Terre Haute, Indiana, under the custody of the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS). If asked for what crime he is currently serving time, his response would yield nothing. Mr. Sanchez is indefinitely being detained in federal prison yet he presently does not stand convicted of a crime for which he must serve a prison sentence.
