SC Sheriffs Propose Illegal Alien Only Jails - Tammy Besherse Says No Way!

Bookmark and Share

The S.C. Sheriffs' Association has made a proposal to create 3 regional jails that would house only illegal aliens awaiting deportation. These jails would be funded by the federal government through the DHS 287(g) program. Currently illegal aliens are housed in county jails which are paid for by local and state taxes. This is a continued move to push the burden of housing and deporting illegal aliens from states which are being forced to pay the costs for lack of action by the federal government onto the feds themselves.

I applaud this action. The main reason is that it would then show the true illegal alien population.

Of course there are those against this proposal and they claim their reason as being that it discriminates against the poor. *shakes head in disbelief*

Tammy Besherse, an attorney for S.C. Appleseed Legal Justice Center which advocates for the poor, acknowledged that some families of illegal immigrants may not like seeing their loved ones transferred to a jail several counties away for relatively minor offenses but said the state has a legal right to house inmates where it sees fit.

A larger problem, Besherse said, is that by concentrating all the immigrants in their own jails may raise the issue of "separate but equal" facilities, that are not really equal at all.

"There would be a lot of potential for the undocumented immigrants to receive substandard treatment, food, etc.," Besherse said in an e-mail. "These guards will now know for a fact the inmates aren't here legally. That could lead to abusive situations."

Screw you Tammy Besherse and your ridiculous argument against these prisons!

Who is Tammy Besherse? Why she is the recent winner of the "Excellence in Legal Service Award" from the American Legal Defense and Education Fund (MALDEF) for April 17, 2008.

From the Appleseed This Week Newsletter:

"South Carolina Appleseed has been very active on this front," Besherse said. "We have worked hard to fight for immigrants' rights on a number of issues and will continue to do so, despite the strong anti- immigrant sentiment we face in the state. South Carolina Appleseed believes that everyone deserves to have their rights protected, regardless of their legal status."

Under Besherse's leadership, South Carolina Appleseed has been a visible presence against anti-immigrant bills in the state legislature. Among the most important accomplishments are fighting to make sure that blatantly illegal bill provisions, such as denying K-12 education to undocumented children, did not become state law and ensuring that the pending immigration omnibus act protects the rights of churches, domestic violence shelters, food banks, and others rendering humanitarian aid to undocumented immigrants.

While at South Carolina Appleseed, Besherse has also dealt with the Department of Motor Vehicles when several Puerto Rican families were wrongly denied driver's licenses. Along this same vein, she has worked with the State Department of Education to remedy enrollment policies that acted as barriers for immigrant children and their families. Other accomplishments run the gamut of services -- introducing new state policies on court interpreting, training law enforcement groups on immigrant crime victims' rights, and providing legal guidance to Hispanic and Latino community groups.

In other words Tammy Besherse works for everyone except the American people.

Perfect SC!!! I hope they actually do it. Tammy should be ashamed of herself. Who the hell cares what these illegals and their families "feel" -- they shouldn't be here to begin with. Why aren't all these bleeding heart liberals more concerned with how the VICTIMS OF ILLEGALS "feel?!?"

I'd go one further... if they really care wouldn't they be headed to the countries that these illegals are coming from and demanding that they take care of their people there so they don't have to make the "treacherous journey to hateful America"?

Tammy Besherse does not understand the difference between an illegal immigrant and a legal immigrant.

It is not a stretch to conclude that Tammy Besherse is an idiot for her inability to make this elementary distinction.
