The U.S. has the highest rate of convicted citizens in the world. In fact, more than the rest of the world put together. It's sheer stupidity. All nonviolent crimes more than 7 or 10 years old should be wiped from the records. Instead of importing future criminals from the Third World (Nigeria, Mexico, Thailand, etc.) give the jobs to people who have leanred their lesson. They are LESS LIKELY to commit a new crime if they have jobs.

Despite the fact that blacks are overwhelmingly hurt by discrimination against the convicted (whether or not they actually committed the crime or were set up by police & prosecutors tampering with evidence). THIS should be the civil rights issue of the day, affecting 30-50 million AMERICAN citizens and their families. Speak up Rob Portman, Sherrod Brown, John Kasich and John Boehner!.

People with non-violent, non-theft, non-drug dealing convictions deserve a second chance...certainly ahead of anyone from overseas.

The problem is with the inherent criminality of blacks. What? Society is just supposed to live with crimes done by blacks?
