What a fricken brilliant idea. Instead of paying for labor, make the criminals do it. Get out tax money’s worth. The cool part? I think more and more people are taking a liking to this suggestion. HERE COMES THE WALL!
President-elect Donald Trump’s great barrier along the Mexican border will be designed to keep illegal immigrants out, but a Massachusetts sheriff has another American benefit on his mind, according to The Washington Times: Inmates can provide free labor to help build it.
Bristol County Sheriff Thomas M. Hodgson, just elected to a fourth term, said his plan would pay dividends for the both the country and the inmates.
“I can think of no other project that would have such a positive impact on our inmates and our country than building this wall,” he said, according to Boston Herald.
“Aside from learning and perfecting construction skills, the symbolism of these inmates building a wall to prevent crime in communities around the country, and to preserve jobs and work opportunities for them and other Americans upon release, can be very powerful,” Hodgson added.
