The USA national debt nearly equals Gross Domestic Product [98% ratio].  This fiscal irresponsibility can be mitigated by reduced and more efficient spending. 

USA  spends over a trillion dollars yearly incarcerating criminals; New York City Jail spent $950 per day per inmate in 2019.  Several billion of that trillion dollars can be saved by locating prisons in lower cost of living areas like Afghanistan where employee guards, cooks, maintenance workers, etc will spend their earnings in the local community supporting their families where their purchases “turn over” to support more citizens.

I suggest turning Bagram into a prison for the foreign born convicts now enjoying personal TVs, fitness centers, libraries, etc courtesy US taxpayers.  Census estimates 12% of US residents are foreign born yet the Sentencing Commission reports foreigners comprise over 30% of convicts in US prisons—nearly 300% their percent of population.  This includes 100,000 DACA recipients

Part or all of prison salaries can be allocated under “foreign aid” as the monies go directly to citizens – grass roots – as opposed to aiding often corrupt government officials.

 The convicted criminals can make court appearances and converse with their tax supported attorneys via Zoom.  Upon release, they will be given a taxpayer paid ride back home to Mexico City, Rio de Janeiro, Dublin,. . .or wherever they’re from
