“We see on one hand that we may have 10 million illegal non-citizens miraculously gainfully employed as well as drawing benefits. So deportation would quickly fill the void with the 10 million unemployed American citizens. Or, at least, a significant proportion... if those unemployed Americans don't belong to the Bush gang, who are unwilling to mow lawns and butcher beef for $6 per hr.
“California, in particular, has come to the crunch of having too many prisoners for the available housing, without the current budget to provide more housing. Two solutions have been suggested. The easiest, of course, is to release some prisoners, early. Like early retirement to balance the budget in the teaching profession.
“The other, more politically loaded, is to incarcerate the Mexican citizens in their homeland at a reduced, affordable rate. The man credited with developing the renowned London Metropolitan Police, Sir Robert Peel offered some great wisdom. At a time of severe punishments, in spite of the trying economic times, when a starving person had no choice other than to steal food, facing prison or deportation, the severity did not come into play. The significant factor was the likelihood of being caught.
“Nowadays, largely due to the development of the attorney, we may add a grey area... the likelihood of being sentenced. Being sentenced, of course, tends to be a far greater probability for a Black youth than a veteran on Wall Street. Of all people, only Martha Stewart appears to have fallen afoul of the financial and legal systems.
“Also on the credit side of the equation, at least in some states, like Georgia and Texas; there remains the noble intent to obtain a hard day's labor from the inmates, teaching them and training them to become good citizens. There must be some economic return for producing license plates and collecting trash on the Interstates?”
Finally, Martha said, “Seldom have I read an article that says so well what so few wish to state. The corruption within our government is horrendous and they don't even try to cover it up any more. Our population has developed a 'ho-hum' attitude about it as they go back to their favorite TV program, totally oblivious to their futures being stolen right from under their feet. I have forwarded your article "Corrupt Congress Wasting Taxpayer Trillions", and hope it will drag a few heads out of the sand. Thank you.”
