Closing Federal Prison Camps Will Save Taxpayers over $1 Billion

This petition had 7,511 supporters

Federal prison camps are considered "out-custody" facilities without fences or walls and we questions the wisdom of the federal government wasting billions of tax dollars of welfare-style appropriations for non-violent able-bodied men and women at federal prison camps when home confinement with an ankle monitor can accomplish the same security and punitive objectives without the enormous financial and social costs. A March 2016 Inspector General report, shows the BOP spent 1.1 billion dollars on healthcare costs in 2014 as part of a $6.8 billion-dollar annual budget. Billions of dollars pour into halfway house coffers to house offenders leaving prison who actually have homes to go to or law abiding, responsible family members who agree to provide housing and support AT NO COST TO THE TAXPAYER. Stop wasting our tax dollars!
