The governor probably wasn’t joking yesterday, when he suggested outsourcing California’s overcrowded prison system to Mexico.
Specifically, he would send the state’s 19,000 imprisoned illegal immigrants to prisons south of the border.
“We pay them to build the prisons down in Mexico and then we have those undocumented immigrants be down there in a prison. … And all this, it would be half the cost to build the prisons and half the cost to run the prisons,” Schwarzenegger said, predicting it would save the state $1 billion that could be spent on higher education.
Lou Dobbs would have a picnic with that.
