One of the popular complaints about illegal immigrants is the supposed, but untrue, assertion that they don’t pay taxes but drain our country’s resources. This bill proposes that our country pay to maintain those overstaying their visa, illegally here after their visa’s expiration, in prison. It makes more sense in my mind, if you believe in the argument that they drain our country financially, to deport them. Prison maintenance is expensive - around $36,300 on average per day per prisoner, according to the Federal Register. This Bill seems either vindictive or an effort to grandstand to me.
