Locked Up or Immigrant?
Which Get Treated Better?
My name is Rafael Robles. I attend F.L. Schlagle High School. I am currently in 10th grade. I was born and grown in Kansas City, Ks.
Why Am I Writing This
I am writing this blog because I have a lot of family that are currently locked up and a lot of family who are immigrants, I want to know if people who are locked up get better treatment than immigrants. In this blog I will be stating "FACTS" and only facts. All of them will fascinate you with their simplicity. I will be researching both sides of this case. We will find out together, if it is better to be "Locked Up or Free".
Cells (Living Situation)
Inmates have assigned rooms or cells. Usually two inmates are put in a room with a bunk bed. Inmates do not get to choose where they are sent to live. They may request a cell change, but bed space and prison needs are the main concerns. Roommates are chosen by staff based on age, work assignments, medical Situations, mental health issues, protection issues, history of violent behavior, and space availability. Not all of these apply to every person, but they are possible considerations. If an inmate does not get along with their assigned roommate, they should speak with a counselor or unit supervisor to explore other housing option. So Basically a prisoner has no choice on where he/she can live.
Work release provides a connection between prison and life outside of prison. It represents an opportunity for inmates with six months or less left in prison to adjust to community life. It provides an opportunity for the Department and the community to monitor that adjustment and ensure the inmate is establishing the necessary positive contacts and resources in the community while still involved in the structured environment of work release.
Work release allows monitored access to the community to:
- Find employment
- Re-establish family ties and renew family support
- Pay legal legally bound things to the court and/or victims
- Pay for part of the cost of their incarceration
- Save money necessary to begin again
Does anyone who pay taxes know what and where their state taxes go toward in the state prison system? First off it costs $33,000 plus a year per inmate in the state prison system to take care of him/her. They get cloth food and school. Did you know that each inmate who attends school classes in the prison gets paid by the state to attend?
