Today on the news Esco said it costs this county 27,000 dollars last year to house all the illegals in jail. That makes me even more angry to think that he didn't send their sorry butts back across the border instead of using our tax dollars to house and feed those criminals. I can't believe he doesn't realize how stupid that statement made him look.

1st, YOU have said the law in Morristown won't do ANYTHING about illigales, but I guess they do, 2d, Esco doesn't have the authority to just send them back, that is the Feds place, and he wants the Fed to pay for it, and who would take them back? How many agents would that take? How much would that cost? They are way more to it than "sending their sorry a$$es back, its all so simple to you, but if only knew...

Wait a second. If he only spent 27k housing illegal aliens. Then they are not doing thier jobs. That amounts to pretty much ignoring the issue .

As the population grows inside the jail, the more taxing it is to the population outside. In 2011, Hamblen County fed 27,000 meals to illegal immigrants in custody. That was only about 10% percent of the whole jail population

Thank you for clearing that up. I was hesitant about the "27k spent".
Lets do a little math.
365 x 3 meals =1095 meals per inmate , per year. so it amounts to about 26 illegals per day all year around. That still seems like a very low number being caught ,compared to known population of illegal aliens in Morristown. You could go from factory to job sites and get 27 a day easy. But they would have to catch and release or the number in the jail would be 365 times higher than it is. The feds need to come in and set up a temparary service for the sole purpose of catching illegals and deporting them. They could do a sting and find out what companies use them also. Talk about a cash cow. Fine the companies twice the cost of deportations and split the left over with the county city and state.

it was 27,000 meals, not 27,000 dollars, and I'd sure the meals cost more than $27,000, just try to pay attention, it makes you look stupid when you don't get your facts right.
