Suggestion: Pick them up at the airport in a truck. Drive them to a secluded spot. Toss them off a cliff and feed the sharks. When word of that gets out, believe me no one will want to get deported back. Will lower crime rate both in the USA and DR considerably.Why does the DR government not put in place a program to help these repatriates once they are back in the country.
Seemingly, yes, at weekends.So it's done in the US. But what about Canada?
Unbelievable!Seemingly, yes, at weekends.
Canada: The chain gangs are back in Alberta | The News is NowPublic.com
I thought it was called penitentiary occupational therapy these days?
i use to lobby for sending our US prisoners to Iraq to fight....:chinese: maybe they could have the DR prisoners repair all the storm damage every year....With so many people in jail in the DR, why doesn't the government implement a program of reforestation so that they can be employed doing something positive for the nation? or maybe like fixing the roads?
Hmmm...interesting thought (NOT). Since they didn't commit any crime in The DR AND they did serve their full sentence in The US before they were deported what do you suggest they hold them for?Why does the DR government not put in place a program to help these repatriates once they are back in the country. They should have a system, where they must enter a halfway house type facility, make them work on chain gangs, and do regular drug testing etc., help them integrate back into society with work placement programs until they can show they are back on the straight and narrow. I would think this would be less costly in the long run compared to trying to combat their crimes, possibly incarcerating them, trials etc. after they are just let loose to do whatever with nothing to support them but their old bad habits.
It is frustrating to sit back and watch this country and its politicians let this country become so crime ridden.
Or am I
Suarez, I don't think anybody is saying that they won't or can't go back to the States or Canada, or whever, just that they won't go back legally - there is a very big difference between the two.Hmmm...interesting thought (NOT). Since they didn't commit any crime in The DR AND they did serve their full sentence in The US before they were deported what do you suggest they hold them for?
This is a topic full of misinformation and yet another one of those where you have plenty of people commenting about something they only know from hearsay.
I (who happen to know quite a bunch of these deportees...just because we're from the same small town or grew up together) know that things are different than painted on the media. In addition if you think these guys don't go back to The US you're very mistaken...lots of them do (of course running a big risk that if they are caught again they will be imprisoned for just being there illegally.
BTW, the new place lots of them are migrating to now is Spain.
You haven't ruffled anyone's feathers (at least not mine). Like I said earlier this has been discussed and rehashed many times over...and like I said earlier you're just talking from hearsay and really have no clue about these deportees.Sorry if I have ruffled some feathers by posting on the topic of the latest 118 convicted felons being returned to DR. My last comment is that these men are not farm workers being deported because they did not have an appropriate work visa. According to the Listin Diario, they were found guilty of murder, drug trafficking, rape, arson, fraud, and kidnapping among other crimes. The fact that most of them are young men, according to a previous poster, only means that they may have a long life of delinquency ahead of them. But who wants to listen to bad news? Let's have more posts about how to arm ourselves and where to buy razor wire to protect our homes instead. Those topics are much more entertaining, don't you think? Enough said.
