With all of their financial woes, is it the true that they haven’t yet proposed simply deporting the illegal alien prisoners?
I heard there are at least 19,000 deportable inmates. The federal government only pays California 11 cents on the dollar for California to house these bums.
Any inmates released should be released in the neighborhoods of these Assembly members and next to Arnold’s house.
inmates who are not U.S. citizens could be turned over to federal authorities for deportation;
I suspect our Dem legislators are howling under their collective breaths about that one, since it will reduce the inmate population by about 40% with the resulting loss of nicely paying state and union jobs.

Securing the borders and fining or punishing employers of illegal aliens is certainly one key step.
Another would be to put an end to the increasingly expensive system of legal punishment in this country. Murderers should be quickly hanged, instead of waiting on death row for 20 years and spending millions on repeated appeals to the ourt system—in which we pay for the public defenders as well as the prosecutors and the judges.
Minor criminals could be given ten lashes or put in the stocks, instead of giving them free room and board for a couple of months.
But, as several have noted, that wouldn’t make the public employees unions that run the prisons very happy. Or the lawyers who swill at the public trough.
