WTF! Every day this country looks more and more like a clip from a Saturday Night Live skit. What kind of bizzaro world is it where a criminal gets better treatment in a detention center than in the country from whence they came?

It seems ICE is in negotiations with it’s confinement contractor to “improve” their detention facilities:

Overall, the facilities are expected to be less prison-like, offering freer movement for detainees, fewer pat downs and better access to legal resources. The agreement calls for fresh vegetables and access to self-serve beverages along with cooking and exercise classes, according to a list released by ICE.

CCA will soften “the look for the facility with hanging plants, flower baskets, new paint colors, different bedding and furniture” and allow lengthy visits from friends and family who can provide outside packages or food for special celebrations under changes to be made over the next six months.

Hey, GREAT NEWS! Now we can bring Uncle Carlos that birthday cake he’s been asking for, except now we won’t have to put a file in it. We’ll just hand it to him along with the knife, gun and keys to the stolen car we left down the road!

Then the family arrives at the facility to find that it’s improved so much, they want to move in! “Arrest me! Arrest me!”

I tell you what, my house could stand some new drapes and a coat of paint too. You think I might could “detain” some of those aliens for you? On second thought, I retract.

Wait, it gets better:

ICE Director John Morton announced last year that the agency would make detention facilities less prison-like because immigrant detainees are being held on civil immigration charges, not criminal offenses…

Yes, you read that correctly. More language calisthenics from the apologists in ICE. Being illegal is not considered criminal. Question: Hey, Mr. Morton Moron, what part of illegal don’t you understand?”

Representatives of the detention officers union sound to me like the only ones with their collective heads out of their arses.

“It’s absolutely insane, the changes they’re making,” said Chris Crane, president of AFGE Council 118/ICE, the union that represents 7,000 ICE officers but not the contractors. “It just makes for an absolutely unsafe environment, not only for the detainees, but for the officers.”

He contends that many detainees could be drug dealers or gang members – even if they haven’t been convicted.

How about instead of spending money painting and otherwise sprucing up the prison and teaching them the fine art of basket weaving, we deport the river swimming, fence jumping, desert crossing law breaking criminals. What do these brain surgeons in ICE think this is going to do to deter future illegals from coming here in the first place?!

I’ll tell you what.


All it is, is more chaos and subjugation heaped upon the backs of the American people.

Had enough yet?

UPDATE: Does Michelle Malkin read the Robot?

    Could ICE donate me a pool while they’re already out wasting taxpayers money? This is absurd. They definitely have their heads up their arses if they think this resort is gonna deter illegal immigrants from crossing the border. This is unreal.

      Heh, Your pool is on order T. Too bad it’s a cesspool and I’m afraid we’re all swimming in it.

    Elections have consequences. I wonder how many people this will kill? No matter, as long as the illegals get their amnesty, and the democrats get their 12,000,000 new voters.

    I saw this on Greta last night. Astounding. We will have so much to straighten out after the libs are tossed out of office.

    • mnrobot June 18, 2010 at 9:53 am

      Yea, It’s going to take some doing.

  • Gorges Smythe June 17, 2010 at 9:25 pm

    I saw some of the inside of the facilities on a blog somewhere, too. I can’t afford anything THAT nice even for a week of vacation!

    Yeah, just skimming the mainstream news headlines, I often have to double check to make sure I’m not reading either Mad Magazine or a wild conspiracy site.

    Come to America. If you don’t get caught you live like an American. If you are caught you live like a king! maybe I should pretend to be illegal
