Jails: Immigrants and More

This video on immigrants in jail really hit me hard.

I am familiar with Rhode Island jails, and I don't think jailing immigrants is in anyone's interest--least of all the families and those incarcerated.

I also know that many States have taken to building and renovating older jails for profit. In fact, more entrepreneurial corporations are running the penal system and fewer are in the hands of local government.

And it seems Senator Jim Webb and I are on the same wavelength this week, but on different paths as he is questioning the entire US jail system.
