They won't serve ANY time if they're deported. Countries don't lock people up for violating other countries' laws.

The reason they make up such a high percentage of federal inmates is because most of them are serving time for immigration-related offenses, such as illegal reentry and transporting aliens. That and drug-smuggling. If we're going to make those activities violations of federal law, we have to pay for the enforcement of the laws.

"Most Latinos with federal sentences are not U.S. citizens."

All the more reason not to touch CIR/amnesty. Enforce our current immigration laws and let's roll up the red carpet and put it away. We're flat broke as a nation and can't afford to provide the milk & honey anymore.
