Sounds like the right idea, although I will vote for jail bond issues, but not school construction. Why pay a middleman?

Shipping illegals home isn't such a bad idea... if Arnold had done so in California he wouldn't be looking at a MULTI BILLION dollar hole in his budget! The cost of jails... schools and hospital beds to "care" for the illegals is staggering!

Before anyone jumps up and down about that idea being cold... REMEMBER each and every one of the countries these folks come from (ie Mexico) have constitutional provisions against providing ANY service to non citizens!

Funny how all the do gooders out there glaze over that!

BTW... Got my property tax bill today! Merry Christmas!

Put'em in tents, and make them wear pink hospital gowns. Save us all money.

What a surprize, a project over budget in NY. I never would have thought. I agree that sending the Illegals back would clear up space, but don't stop there. the same should go for anyone here on a green card. you're obviously undesireable, back you go.

The big "cost cutter" Levy has been a real pussycat in this project. I smell a rat. Who cares about "overcrowded prisioners"? Stack them up like cordwood, do you think I give a damn?

What is the law for crimes by a green card holder? Not that it matters, the law for illegals is only enforced for a kosher meat packing place too tight to pay the bribes!

Dear Paul,
This is the difference between us as Americans and the rest of the world. We care and value the humanbeings rights.I was working for our fedral government in Iraq and we were fighting for the freedom and liberty for everyone including improving the jails systems and conditions in Iraq.Please, don't forget that America is the greatest nation who fight and respect the human rights.
May God bless our great nation and bring our troops back home safe
