Are Failed Asylum seekers now treated like Animals?

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials allegedly drugged 2 failed asylum seekers while attempting to physically remove them from the U.S. by airplane. These foreign nationals were allegedly sedated against their will, as reported by the LA Times, linked above.
Does ICE have the right to sedate these individuals against their will if they pose a threat to other passengers or themselves? What do you think?
