It galls me to think we need to incarcerate people to provide some with a job!!! Why not close our borders and ports, send all the illegals home and i think there will be plenty of jobs for anyone who is willing to work. Will also solve a lot of our other problems like overcrowed schools, hospital emergency rooms, wont need to import as much oil, stop the drain on the welfare system. List is endless. DJW
