BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — A staggering number of illegal immigrants are housed in California's prisons and jails, and it's taxpayers who foot the huge bill.

******

"It's too much money," echoed state Sen. Michael Rubio, D-Bakersfield. He's been working on legislation to deal with prison medical costs.

And Sen. Jean Fuller, R-Bakersfield, said it's a concern she's had for a long time.

"It's very difficult for people to conceive the size of the problem," Fuller said.

Of the immigrants in state prison, the most come from Mexico, according to the CDCR data. As of December 2010, they show a total of 15,985 inmates from our neighbor to the south. Of those, 1,928 are listed as being here legally, having no ICE hold.

Another 14,057 California prisoners are illegal immigrants from Mexico that are on an ICE hold or potential hold.

Next comes El Salvador, with a total of 1,231 inmates in state prisons. The list shows 113 are in the United States legally, and 1,118 are not.

It would certainly be cheaper to just send them back. But, oooh nooooo, they are "entitled" to due process of law. We don't want to step on their "rights" do we?

I wonder how many of them are 2 and 3 time offenders, and that wouldn't include the first "offense", being in the US illegally, as it appears it is no longer an offense or against the law.

I guess those that are legally in the US holding a green card and not on ICE hold, are the "real criminals".

Sadly, your post is dead on. In many cases illegal aliens occupying space in our prisons have a better life than if they were free in their own countries. Human rights, three meals a day and a roof over their heads courtesy of our tax dollars. I'm sure there are lots of family reunions as well.
