That is exactly how it works. Prisoners who have earned working priveledges are allowed to work in the laundry, cafeteria, plate shop, etc. and get paid pretty much nothing. My father went to a minimum security prison for six months after recieving multiple DWI's and received the same treatment. Frankly though, I don't think they should be using this labor source at all. I mean, the reason they have been detained is they crossed our borders illegally in order to work. So the solution is apprehend them, then put them to work for the government at what amounts to a slave wage?

What I want to know is why are they being kept around so long after apprehension? If I were running that ship, within 24 to 48 hours the illegals in question would be back on their side of the border. There is no need for all the red tape and time consuming legal mumbo jumbo. Just send them home with a coke and a smile. The system is using their own red tape to complicate this process and keep these workers here longer. And I have to wonder just how many of them are actually being deported when it's all said and done.

And that would include illegals - who are also serving time in federal prisons.
Fair? Who cares? What is good for our criminal citizens is good for illegal criminals as well.
I wasn’t implying that the prisons don’t require them to pay for certain products. I was merely stating a fact – we, the taxpayers, foot the bill for our penal institutions; including the toiletries and other items inmates purchase from the prisons. It’s similar to parents paying an allowance to their child, and then making the child pay for candy at the store. It gives the child an opportunity to “earn” the money, but the parents are still footing the bill.

In the case of my particular facility, all of our “guests” were foreign nationals; primarily the criminally insane we received from Castro in the Cuban Entrant Program. Unlike our citizen prisoners, they weren’t required to work or pay for anything; although a select few could work and earn money that they could keep in facility maintained accounts. After all, they weren’t responsible for the heinous crimes they committed, and our government did agree to provide treatment courtesy of U.S. taxpayers. We certainly couldn’t expect the Cuban government to pay for emptying their prisons and mental institutions, and dumping them on our shores. To add insult to injury, our tax dollars paid for only brand name products. You gotta love it.

Tight a er I mean tinman You got me down pretty good.
Let me try you.
Attention attention on the train. We have just crossed the border and are headed for our turn around port. I hope you have enjoyed your meal of refried barb wire and broken glass. Our chief chef the Hammer added a little rust to spice it up. Now if you would please gather at the doors your friendly conductor Leatherhead will see you off the train as it slows below 50mph. It has been our pleasure to deport you. Please obtain a legal visa from our ever so helpful embassy for you next visit. And folks remember you have a friend in jesus but jesus christ aint on this train now get the hell off.

Dead on R2M! I have wondered the same thing for a long time now. Besides our jails are much nicer than the shanty's they live in at home. What they should do is tattoo a serial number on them, drive them back to the border and release them.

If they come back and are caught, put all of them together in a remote prison camp and let them have at each other. If they put rival gang members together and the murderers with the child molesters they would eliminate each other. Can you imagine the savings to the taxpayers?
