At the Government’s Expense

July 15, 2004

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has announced an interesting alternative to the traditional forms of detention for those in immigration proceedings. It looks like some people will be allowed to wear electronic ankle bracelets in lieu of being detained. I heard a figure once that it costs the government $60.00/day for each person who is in immigration custody. Electronic monitoring devices may be the answer to saving valuable manpower and much needed revenue.

DHS is also cracking down on human-smugglers at LAX Airport.
