Schwarzenegger: Send Illegal Immigrant Prisoners to Mexico

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/8480047.stm

Since California is running such a large budget and has a highly overcrowded prison system, Governor Arnold decided to kill birds with one stone. The solution? Simple, build prisons in Mexico to house criminals who are undocumented immigrants. Maybe it is just me, but this idea seems like it was thought up really early in the morning after drinking a ton of beers. Your state has a large fiscal deficit, so the answer is to spend more money building prisons in Mexico? Again, maybe I’m missing something, but the whole idea seems like a ridiculous proposal whose sole purpose is to generate media attention. Then again, Arnold is pretty fond of doing just that so who knows.
