Closing prisons and releasing the criminals into our communties has been proposed as a solution to Oregon's spending problem. We could instead release them using rapid REPAT.
Rapid REPAT is a program that deports illegal aliens serving time in prison. The criminal alien who is convicted of a non-violent offense may have his sentence reduced for the purposes of deportation on the condition that if they come back to the United States they will serve a much much much longer sentence.
Let's stop giving three hots and a cot to these people, send them back where they came from.
By the way, if you want to have you socks knocked off here the Current inmates with ICE detainers As of December 1, 2008. Keep in mind that the list is just people in the prison system, it does not include those in county jails.
