Illegal Immigrants Get Better Treatment Than the Elderly or Homeless

There was a report from the Houston Chronicle that was mentioned on KFI’s John & Ken radio show detailing how the federal government wants to make illegal immigrant detention centers more humane.  By “more humane” they meant free continental breakfast, dance classes, art classes, free internet, bingo, etc.

White House Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs, said, “When people come to our custody, we’re detaining them to effect their removal,” Gibson said. “It’s about deportation. It’s not about punishing people for a crime they committed.”

What part of “illegal” isn’t about breaking the law and what part of “breaking the law” shouldn’t warrant punishment?

When I had heard about this, it reminded me of an e-mail I received about how the elderly in nursing homes should go to jail for better treatment and the prisoners should be allowed to suffer in the nursing homes.

Here goes:

Let’s put the seniors in jail, and the criminals in a nursing home.

This way the seniors would have access to showers, hobbies, and walks, they’d receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental medical treatment, wheel chairs etc. and they’d receive money instead of paying it out.

They would have constant video monitoring, so they could be helped instantly, if they fell, or needed assistance.

Bedding would be washed twice a week, and all clothing would be ironed and returned to them.

A guard would check on them every 20 minutes, and bring their meals and snacks to their cell. They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose.

They would have access to a library, weight room, spiritual counseling, pool, and education.

Simple clothing, shoes, slippers, P.J.’s and legal aid would be free, on request. Private, secure rooms for all, with an exercise outdoor yard, with gardens.

Each senior could have a P.C. a T.V , radio, and daily phone calls.

There would be a board of directors, to hear complaints, and the guards would have a code of conduct, that would be strictly adhered to.

The “criminals” would get cold food, be left all alone, and unsupervised. Lights off at 8pm, and showers once a week. Live in a tiny room, and pay $5000.00 per month and have no hope of ever getting out.

Justice for all.

Hey, maybe the homeless folks hanging in downtown L.A. should hitchhike over to Texas and pretend they’re illegals to get free food, shelter and entertainment.

It’s amazing what our federal tax dollars are going towards.

    They also get better treatment than veterans who have to drive miles to a local VA hospital for routine treatment.
