for all of you that keep saying that they get better medical than us:

Pablo E. Paez, a spokesman for GEO Group Inc. said in an e-mail Tuesday to The Associated Press that the company does not provide medical services or health care.

the group itself has said they do not provide it!

you are entitled to your own opinion but that is an option for any who chose to use it. i know its a small number but if ppl don't know its there they wont use it. this way they can choose if they want to.

Oh Liz....

As I said in your many other posts, just real facts. In this world, they can be found on the internet.

Medical care (24 hrs a day/7 days a week) is provided by PNA. As in RN/LVN/Doctors/etc.. every day.

Another example of the costs of having open borders as this prison holds criminal "immigrants". What we should consider is outsourcing our prisons, send the criminal Mexicans to a poor country like Haiti and pay the Haitans to supervise them and hold them in prisons there.

Of course GEO does not "provide medical" the county has contracts with PNA to do the medical...and they are always going to the hospital on the outside also...I wish I had a dr. at my beck and call every and I mean EVERYDAY!

Don't you people see....if there were 3000 people in this prison and they never ever got medical attention...the disease and illness's that run rampant would kill them all off in a matter of months....When that many people live together in a small space....Medical is the only thing that keeps them from staying ill all the time....ITS COMMON SENSE....

The prisons mentioned where the big riots are taking place are for Mexicans and other criminal immigrants.

The inmates also wanted to speak with the Mexican Consulate. Most of the prisoners are illegal immigrants.

Prisoners do get better healthcare than us. First if you get sick you have to ask for time off from work to go see a doctor. Thats lose of money right off that bat. Then when you do go see the docotor we have to pay a copay or and deductible. Prisoners don't worry about that they get a headache and want to see a doctor. Common these are prisoner. They broke the law no matter how minor it was.

American laws should not be imposed on them since they are not Americans.

They should all be freed immediately.

Sure. Well that is true, considering they break the law by being here, or smuggling the narcotics, or ..........

I guess you are right, our laws don't apply to them. They are special....
