On Thursday the Department of Justice announced they were planning an expansion of their program to deport criminal illegals, whom are already in prison for their crimes.
Stats from the Bureau of Prison show just over 20 percent of federal inmates are illegal aliens.
“We owe it to the American people to ensure that illegal aliens who have been convicted of crimes and are serving time in our federal prisons are expeditiously removed from our country as the law requires,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement. “This expansion and modernization of the Institutional Hearing Program gives us the tools to continue making Americans safe again in their communities.”
The success of this program will not only allow more room for prisoners, but also save US citizens money.
Funding these criminals to stay in our prisons is absurd. Sessions has the right idea about this program.
