National Review blogger says Census should change where incarcerated people counted
by Peter Wagner, September 10, 2009
Eli Lehrer writes in the conservative National Review Online that the Census Bureau should change where it counts incarcerated people:
“Prisoners aren’t, in any real sense, residents of the places where they are incarcerated…. Their victims and families very likely live in the places where they came from. In short, the costs that prisoners impose on society fall on the municipalities where they lived and will probably return after release.”
