You are very retarded. We need more immigrants to bring new genes to this countries inbred gene pool. Sarah Palin is a good example of what happens when inbreeding goes to far.
Well you go to their country and give your genes instead of bringing them here.

I can't say I agree with all of you regardless of their ethnicity no one in a United States Detention center or Prison should have to die or be treated unhuman, set aside that they are aliens but so are we this country wasn't always ours America shouldn't show descrimination all these inmates want is for medical attention so why not just give it to them and avoid this type of situation.
<quoted text>
Keep in mind, they violated the laws of society, thus acted inhuman. They therefore lose their rights to civil human treatment. These guys are not here for entering the US, they all comitted a felony, a federal crime against the country.

I want to comment to you all that made comments about the health care these inmates are getting let me ask you how many of you and your family can go to dentists, specialists, even routine dr visits? these inmates are getting free medical care, free dental care, and how many of your family members can afford dentures, hernia surgeries, back surgeries, cataract surgeries. tell me they are not getting good health care these inmates are getting medications free they do not pay for anything and they are illegal aliens and this is our tax dollars at work. To the wife of the inmate that was on television mrs. Valdez your husband is in prison for a reason and thats not for being a good samaritan he is in a federal prison for a reason so quit playing the victim. The sad thing about all of this the 2 officers that were taken hostage, got no compensation and the inmates that took them hostage will not receive punishment. Pretty sad. These officers work for a living and the inmates are there cause they comitted a crime. They burn the recreation building down, tore up one of the housings and our tax dollars have to replace these things everytime they tear them up because they are federal inmates. Tell me do our us citizens get the same treatment when they are incarcerated in other countries? I think not! Look at the whole picture before passing judgment on the workers and the facility.
finally a comment that makes sense
