Immigrant families? |

Immigrant families?

It’s amazing that columnist Amy Goodman can walk upright. She leans too far to the left. The story that ran on Feb. 28 is so slanted it’s ridiculous.

Kevin and his parents are in a residential facility for illegal immigrants, a private correctional facility. Had they not de-planed at Puerto Rico, they would not have been questioned by custom officials.

The custom officers obviously found the passports to be fraudulent.

Had they reached Canada, Greek passports would be suspect since Canada had deported them. The question is, after 10 years, why did Canada deport them?

Can there be any question that the Corrections Corporation of America, that has 70 facilities, is more efficient than federal or state prison? State and federal prisoners are sent to their facilities because it’s cheaper than housing them locally. This is proven by their large profits.

There are 26,000 legal and illegal immigrants in prison because they were convicted of committing a felony.

The two organizations that published the negative report on CCA are obviously immigrant activists. They want our borders to be wide open. We don’t.
