Well since it is a list of roses, they are all roses with different names... Your point?


Community service usually is paying off a fine, so they are paying your fine for you.

It is also a choice, so in your plan, do the ones caught have the choice to not work on the wall?

But that would be "slave labor" by your definition.

And while they are building the wall, which would take years. We can build some extra prisons and hire the CCA to come in and control the process.

Hell while we're at it, we can pass new bed quotas to be sure the wall gets built and we have a residual flow of new inmates into labor camps and guaranteeing population to build the wall.

Then after the walls built, at least we'll have labor camps and new prisons for the next intern.

Whoever that'll be...

See the edit, community service is done with a choice.
Either pay the fine/serve the sentence OR do the community service.

I think you just came up with the solution on how to pay for the expenses


Sure, they can do labor or a hefty fine.

How does 25% of Mexico's population live in the U.S.? A population is a group of people that live in a particular area so...yea.

Most community services as a result of a conviction are not "done by choice." Probation is not " a choice." In fact, not much in our penal system is "a choice"--it is an involuntary punishment done for conviction of a crime after due process because that's the entire frigging point--that it's something not pleasant.

I don't think the wall is the answer. We have Wall/Fence in some parts...and some of it is really badly thought out...Do some research and you'll see that it's not very well thought out or constructed.

Also why don't we fund a wall ourselves? Because neither democrat or republicans really want one. same with immigration reform.. it's more fun, apparently, to fight over stuff without ever getting anything done.

And when they don't pay the fine?

a reply to: NavyDoc
I disagree, community service is often done to replace something.

Probation does not equal community service, they are not one in the same.

Tell me why they pay our prisoners now a days and can't just force them to do work when ever they want?

So would we build a wall around the Canadian border too?
or is it just mainly for the brown people down south?

Just to clarify the legal point: community service CAN BE punitive, but can be IN LIEU OF other punitive measures.

It falls under the umbrella of "alternative sentencing."

A person can be sentenced to incarceration and community service both, or can be given the chance to do community service to get a reduced charge and no jail time. Just depends.

And that wasn't directed specifically at you, just a general FYI

They are prisoners and they get paid pennies and they have no choice in the manner because it is a proper punishment as set forth in the Constitution.

Or do you think any punishment for a crime being cruel and unjust?

Nope just forcing someone to build a wall would be, as that is all I have said.

Never once said any punishment is.

If convicted after due process, building a wall would not be slave labor and would be constitutional. They could be paid 5 cents an hour like every other criminal in prison if that would make you feel better.

Yes because that's what this world needs another great big wall that separates the haves from the half not's.

Want an easier solution to the ILLEGAL immigration problem?

Stop handing out social services. Don't give them EBT and SNAP. Don't give them lower housing costs, and free college tuition. Don't allow their ILLEGAL children to be registered at school. Stop making it easy for them.

I understand WHY they come here. But that doesn't excuse the fact that they are breaking the law. And with that, siphoning tax money away.

Oh.. and the last thing? PROSECUTE businesses who hire illegal immigrant workers.
