South Carolina to build three new prisons for illegal immigrants

South Carolina sheriffs back a plan to build three regional prisons in the state to hold illegal immigrants as they await deportation.

Several sheriffs tell The Myrtle Beach Sun News that the plan would remove the inmates from overcrowded county jails, where they take up valuable space as they await officials to transfer them to the closest federal immigration court in Atlanta.

The current plan calls for the three prisons to hold up to 400 inmates each. State prison officials will run the facilities, which will be paid for through a program with the federal Department of Homeland Security.

It hasn't been determined who will pay to build the prisons, and officials stress the plan is a work in progress.

Advocates for the poor worry concentrating illegal immigrants in a few jails may lead to substandard care in those facilities.

But when we turn to the Hebrew literature, we do not find such jokes about the donkey. Rather the animal is known for its strength and its loyalty to its master (Genesis 49:14; Numbers 22:30).

huh. I'm not sure what I think about that. If the people awaiting deportation were arrested only for breaking immigration laws than I suppose they would feel better not being housed with violent criminals. I wonder if the prison system could save money going this route. They can access more DHS money at least. Also, regarding the advocates' concerns, I would think that it would be easier to keep on eye on how people are being treated if everyone is in one place.

Also, they're talking about jails, not prisons, right? I would think that violent offenders, legally here or not, would serve time in the US prison system prior to deportation to their home country. And people only convicted of immigration crimes are just held in jail prior to deportation. But then, I'm not really sure how it all works.

I know how they will be able to afford to pay for the prisons. They will use those illegal immigrants to build them! Latest stats shown that Mexican has a 47% (according to CQ Researcher) share in illegal immigration to the US, which is the largest of all the other areas.

Not a very convincing argument, is it? Because the solution is, you know, to build more than "a few" jails :lol:
