All inmates in DOC custody that have an ICE hold
(large file - .rtf format)
I have received an updated ICE detainer list for all inmates in DOC custody. (from my usual source) This list is current as of May 8, 2006. It includes "country of birth" for the inmates. We now have a total of 909 illegal alien inmates sitting in our prisons at taxpayer expense.
This costs us $22,405,441.05 every year.
($67.53 X 365)909 = $22,405,441.05
And this doesn't include the hundreds, if not thousands, of inmates in our county jails.
Now regardless of the dollar cost, look at the crimes on that list. Look at the human cost. Oregon taxpayers pay for the housing of these criminals who shouldn't even be in this country but the children and our communities pay as victims.
How can Bush look himself in the mirror knowing that children are being raped by his "good-hearted folks" who "just come here to work hard"?
And yes, Americans are rapists too. But we need to prevent every single crime we can and if the causation is clear: if these people were not in our communities then they couldn't commit crimes in our communities!
