    California Considers Releasing Immigrant Inmates to Cut Costs

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. – With California slipping into a financial sinkhole, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is proposing to save more than $180 million by cutting short the sentences of thousands of immigrants in the state's prisons and turning them over to federal authorities for deportation.

    The idea faces certain hurdles — for one thing, commuting some sentences will require court approval — and immigration authorities warn that a mass release of inmates from California and other states could swamp the federal system, which is already at capacity.

    But Schwarzenegger spokeswoman Lisa Page said: "Every dollar not spent to house an undocumented immigrant inmate is a dollar that can be spent on health care services and education and other important programs to Californians. These inmates are the federal government's responsibility and California taxpayers shouldn't be paying the bill."

    In recent years, other states have struck agreements with federal authorities to deport some inmates before their sentences were up, but those releases were done on a much smaller scale than what California is proposing.

    The state's plan would involve as many as 19,000 inmates. Those among them who committed sex offenses or violent crimes would not be eligible for early release, Page said Friday.

    Nearly 65,000 immigrants — most of them in the U.S. illegally — are serving time in the U.S. for state crimes.

    Once immigrants have done their time in state prison, the federal government takes custody of most of them and begins deportation proceedings against them, either because they are illegal immigrants or because they committed crimes while in the U.S. legally.

    The government reimburses states for some of the expenses involved in imprisoning immigrants, but states say the money is not nearly enough to cover their costs.

    Schwarzenegger is proposing to commute the sentences of thousands of immigrants and transfer them to federal custody over the next 12 months to help close a state budget gap projected at more than $24 billion.

    All of them should be sent back where they came from, not moved from US prison to US prison. Our government is so ridiculous.

    Yes they should send them all back to were they came. And keep thier finger prints on file in other states, so that they know if they are repeat offenders.

    And if they are repeat offenders, we need to do more than just send them back over the boarder to come right back... or put them in our prisons so that tax payers are keeping them fed and housed.

    NICE

    California refuses to carry out their immigration laws, so WE the TAXPAYERS, are cordially invited to foot the bill now that Cali is broke.
