Some Okla jails benefit from housing immigrants
Associated Press - August 29, 2010 6:45 PM ET

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Many Oklahomans may want them gone, but for some counties keeping illegal immigrants here in jail can help the bottom line.

They act as though the money they receive from the “federal government” isn’t funded by taxpayers. How does squandering tax dollars on illegal aliens benefit the citizens of Oklahoma or any other state?

I say, he says, they say!!! ??? and reported by AP. This makes it correct and true, right?

Where does the money come from to support the jails? The tax payers, HELLO. The loss of 40 jobs certainly is not the collapse of an entire county.

It sure is a slow, end of summer period for the media to even mention a story like this.....

I don't think that this is something to be appreciated. Since when was NOT having enough legal criminals a desired situation? So, instead of being happy with that, we are supposed to be happy that we now have enough undocumented immigrants who will be criminals and pull up their end of things. We are backwards on a lot of things in our country.

It's supposed to be a GOOD THING when there there isn't enough "business." You don't say, "Oh, these people need to keep their jobs or we need to keep making more money, we need more crime!" Where are our priorities? We'll wish for more crime to make more money? That is our problem, we want to keep things making money (bad money) no matter what we have to do to keep them open.

and I don't think the article or news report is totally acurate as to how the people on the county feel. I think it is being spun..

I agree with you there.
When they say Oklahomans, they're talking about the Tulsa area(wich was sanctioned) and not the mid to lower half of OK who are totaly against the existance of illegals.
