Obama has told us they can't return since our border is secure, right?

Well everyone knows most would be back the next day. The borders aren't very secure at all but yes it would make sense to return foreign prisoners to their own countries -- but make sure they can't come back.

It would be better because there they know the language, their families are closer and can visit them in prison. Unless their families are illegally here, then they should be sent back also and can visit their loved one in prison.

Good article and I am in full agreement. If prisoners have to be released back into our streets the first thing should be to deport all of them that are here illegally.

California has the option of building low max security prison[s] and moving non-violent offenders there. There is no need to release or even deport criminals from California prisons.

There is a need to deport illegals because they are not supposed to be here.

Sure, and that takes time, building new prisons. Not to mention money that the US (especially California) does not have. In the meantime, these alleged abuses cited by the court will continue and increase.

So basically your solution is to pour gas on the fire and hope for the best?

Good plan! NOT!

My fear would be that they'd jump the fence and be back on the streets committing crimes within a few days.

Lets be clear, these criminal aliens are in California prisons because the committed a crime against the state...most likely not for unauthorized entry into the US. So wouldnt that be sending the message ...committ a serious crime in California and they will simply deport you with no prison time?

Im sure those that are deportable have and will be deported.

One other point...the Home nation does not have to accept a deportable criminal alien. Recently the case of a Cambodian criminal alien that Cambodia refused to accept back.

Its not my plan, Its an option; as is deportation.

Not considering all options is not a good plan...
