Re: Exportation of Criminals
It wouldn't be like Australia because once their prison sentence is complete, they would be allowed to come back to the States, because they are still citizens. This program would not apply to all prisons or prisoners, just ones convicted for long periods of time, such as 10 years to life sentences.
They also could perform works for the country they are placed in, such as help build roads, work on infrastructure, build housing, etc. It could be a form of a charity project for an under developed nation. If they had a project to work on all the time in a foreign country, they could be less violent toward one another.
