Re: “Where Southwestern Pa.’s delegation stand on Trump’s family-separation immigration policy

While imprisoning all who cross illegally could reduce jaywalking; it won't prevent people fleeing violence but a zero tolerance policy for refugees would reroute tax dollars to the prison industry. Although repeated attempts to rob millions of health insurance suggested preexisting sociopathic tendencies, many who now see Toomey or Trump as simply sadistic underestimate the profit motive behind mass incarceration. "If a woman in Pennsylvania breaks the law and commits a crime and shes arrested and prosecuted, her children do not go into her prison cell with her", Senator Toomey lamented. She is separated from her children. That is a painful exercise. How do you avoid it? It is obviously very, very difficult to impose this on the children." But Toomey continued; "If we pass legislation that permits it, we could have family detention centers." A return to keeping poor families together in debtor prisons. however, would be rejected by the majority of Americans; the same short sighted little people who saw imprisoning refugees as cruel and child abuse still fail to appreciate the big business opportunities in exploiting human suffering. http://www.phillyvoice.com/toomey-family-detention-centers-ease-child-separation-concerns/
