GOP opposition to Governor's Proposed Mass Releases

The Sacramento Bee reports:

State Sen. Dennis Hollingsworth said today that most of his GOP colleagues oppose early release for illegal immigrant inmates or other state prisoners to help reduce the state's $24.3 billion deficit.

"We don't want to see early release. We don't want to see criminal aliens being released to the federal government and then deported and returning back to the streets and communities ofCalifornia - for a very small amount of savings, by the way," Hollingsworth, the SenateRepublican leader, told The Bee's Capitol Bureau in an interview. The GOP holds 15 out of 40 seats in the state Senate.
