After reading the article, Tough on Corretions, it should have stated, Tough on Criminal Justice System and the California legislature who made the laws. They say they have 170 thousand locked up. I bet 70 thousand are Mexican people. Why not deport them and close the dam border. I suggest that if we brought all our troops home from foreign soil and used them to secure our borders as our consitution tells us, and deport all illegals most of our countrys problems would soon go away.
If you will research what our President Dwight Eisenhauer did after the Korean conflict, you will see that he understood our Constitution. He quietley deported all the illegals to free up jobs for GI's returning from Korea.djw
