Jailbirds to Fly South?

As president of the Asociación de Comerciantes Turisticos de Tijuana, Julián Palombo Saucedo is worried. He recently learned that convicted Mexican nationals serving prison time in California may be returning to Mexico via Tijuana.

Palombo's main interest is in increasing international tourism for the city. In a Frontera article, he claims that 34 prisons are going to release the inmates in order to ameliorate overcrowded prison conditions and to reduce costs in maintaining the system.

Crime in TJ could skyrocket 30 percent if the current plan is carried out, according to Palombo. He wants authorities on both sides of the border to work together to smooth any kind of prisoner deportation to Mexico and for California to allow access to information on each prisoner so that tijuanenses can be forewarned of any potentially dangerous persons arriving in the city.

Praga: Italian at a Czech restaurant in Mexico

Not many pedestrians. No mariachis. And definitely no striped zebra-donkeys.

It's about time. They'll be back again I'm sure.

Sept. 1, 2009

As a US citizen I agree housing and feeding illegal criminals is not necessarily our job, but to drop them back in TJ is not the right thing to do either. There is no one to take them in so what do we think they will do. The cartel's are looking for disposable people so another life of crime won't be a problem not to mention the fact that with the border right there they will just return. More criminals in the US but now free to do more crime. Not a very well thought out solution.

"..I agree housing and feeding illegal criminals is not necessarily our job..."

Mexican nationals are not necessarily illegal immigrants. They could be legal immigrants that will now be deported because of their crimes. Maybe us Baja residents could all chip in a few bucks and have them flown to Chiapas, instead...

40,000 criminals should not be sent to any one place that doesn't have guards.

These people are just going to end up back in the U.S. committing crimes. California needs to streamline the appeals process and increase the use of the death penalty.
