I certainly hope ICE will immediately deport them, and not simply release them back into our communities.

California officials are weighing a plan to save hundreds of millions of dollars by commuting the sentences of 38,000 state prison inmates, including all undocumented immigrants now incarcerated.

Under the plan, the sentences of 19,000 undocumented immigrants -- 11% of the prison population -- would be commuted and the inmates would be turned over to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency.

As long as they have committed non-violent crimes and they are immediately deported, I think this is a GREAT thing.

Let's grant amnesty to all of them and give them free access to our tax payer-funded social services.

I agree. Why should taxpayers support these criminals? However, when they are deported, there is nothing preventing them from returning. Until our borders are secured, deportation means nothing.

Exactly - that is the key.

I should stress the "non-violent," however. If they commit murder, rape, etc., we need to bite the bullet and support their sorry asses.

I'm all for it as long as it's not a violent crime. If it us a violent crime, they need to finish their sentences before they get deported. Other wise, they will return in a heart beat without paying for their crime.

I think we are all in agreement regarding violent criminals. However, I would like to see all of them deported NEVER to return. If we stringently enforced our laws, we wouldn’t have to concern ourselves with deportees.

I want even the nonviolent illegals deported. If they were convicted of a crime, they are certainly NOT the type of people we need in this country. We have enough homegrown criminals; we don’t need them imported.

If they were in a prison they are obviously there for a felony and yes, they should be deported.

After their release, however, if it was a violent felony. Non-violent felonies, I'm not sure.

If they commit a misdemeanor, they should be handed over to Immigration upon their initial arrest. Bail shouldn't be set and the case shouldn't get to a court at all.

Agreed afoig. Why should we even spend the tax dollars on a trial. Let them go home. As was said earlier, this would only work if our border did not look like swiss cheese.
