    Relocating nonviolent prisoners with a low chance of recidivism, both would increase the amount of space available in prisons and help save taxpayer's money. It is a double win. This a very good idea.

    Want productive citizens? Focus of rehabilitation instead of just punishment. Should only be for nonviolent offenders.

    Non-violent federal prisoners with low risk of recidivism should not be kept in detention centers on the taxpayer's dime. Relocating low-risk offenders will cut prison costs and not pose a threat to surrounding communities.

    It’s ridiculous to House white collar criminals, they aren’t violent and they work. They aren’t in need of drug rehab or substance abuse programs. Having them in camps or on home confinement with or without electronic monitoring would save millions of dollars a year. It would also allow them to work and pay back restitution at a faster rate. Even if they are on level three home confinement it puts all the expense of maintaining hem on their family and off the government if they have the ability to support them. Of course the BOP is all union jobs and they hate this idea because fewer inmates means fewer jobs.
