Thank God that at least some American prisoners will get to serve time back in a proud American State where the prisons aren't Alien infested Gangland holes like ours have become. Any American prison will be a welcome sight after dismal third world Mexifornia prisons.

While many are eager to see California send many prisoners out of state,why dont you find out how much this will cost California tax payors? This is not free.While we are all worried about jobs ,why dont you find out how many of those jobs has gone into the prison system for cheap labor.The prison system is nothing but a cash cow for its investors at the tax payors expense.

California, under pressure to reduce the number of inmates in its crowded prisons, has steadily increased the number of convicts it sends to private institutions outside the state since Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger began the program in 2006.

The latest deal will ship 5,800 inmates to private prisons across state lines, bringing the total to more than 15,000. The transfers will begin in May under a contract that runs through June 2013 - nearly halfway through the term of Gov.-elect Jerry Brown.

As a ex-con I can tell you those Gyms are nasty, violent, unsanitary places with Bad air-conditioning and no heat in the winter. Imagine a 10 degree night in Tehachapi in that muthfauka. They're handling the situation slowly but surely with out of state transfers and non-revocable parole. But overcrowding will remain a serious problem.

Yes, but it is a serious problem everywhere. Our solders live by what they call the sand book standard. to put that in laymen terms that would mean an equivalent to 4 people per cell. 2 on each side in bunk beds. So I don't really know what you mean by, and what you are comparing to when you say overcrowding. a 50 man tent..? Our solders live in those too. so that seems pretty normal.

Having worked in the area I simply do not believe that there is an ex-con living in San Bernardino.
