    If Eric Holder is serious about using a little common sense in bringing down the numbers of unwise prosecutions, he could start by reducing the enormous numbers of illegal reentry prosecutions, which have dwarfed the rest of the federal calendar.

    It doesn't make sense to keep on filling BOP beds for a decade either, because a gardener or maid or carpenter or dishwasher used a bogus social security number. That costs a good $50,000 a year, so half a million bucks later and a bus ticket to Tijuana, and how are we better off? It would also reduce the population of the narcoterrorist recruiting centers run by the for-profit prison industry at places like California City and Natchez, Mississippi.
