"I mean other than .. the long detention before trial"

THAT is the problem. Do you think it's fair that he was detained for 10 months, when he actually won his court case? I mean, think about it. let's say the police suspects you of murder. you're arrested and denied bail. it takes 10 months for the trial to happen, at which point you're found innocent, but you've lost almost one year of your life.

Except OP wasn't even being arrested for murder, he was arrested for getting a felony conviction as a greencard holder. If i understood OP correctly, one of the things he's advocating for is getting rid of the "mandatory detention" part of his arrest (among other things).
