Does the existence of this prisoner export business make a state more or less likely to get rid of stupid laws? I'm thinking less. That said, perhaps from a humanitarian perspective, it's better to export them than to put them in crowded jail cells...

Nice:Court gives detainees habeas rightsThursday, June 12th, 2008 10:08 am | Lyle Denniston | Print This PostEmail this • Share on Facebook • Digg This!In a stunning blow to the Bush Administration in its war-on-terrorism policies, the Supreme Court ruled Thursday that foreign nationals held at Guantanamo Bay have a right to pursue habeas challenges to their detention. The Court, dividing 5-4, ruled that Congress had not validly taken away habeas rights. If Congress wishes to suspend habeas, it must do so only as the Constitution allows — when the country faces rebellion or invasion.The Court stressed that it was not ruling that the detainees are entitled to be released — that is, entitled to have writs issued to end their confinement. That issue, it said, is left to the District Court judges who will be hearing the challenges. The Court also said that “we do not address whether the President has authority to detain” the individuals at the U.S. Naval base in Cuba; that, too, it said, is to be considered by the District judges.In a second ruling on habeas, the Court decided unanimously that U.S. citizens held by U.S. military forces in Irqn have a right to file habeas cases, but that federal judges do not have any authority to bar the transfer of those individuals to Iraqi authorites to face prosecution or punishment for crimes committed in that country in violation of Iraqi laws.http://www.scotusblog.com/wp/court-gives-detainees-habeas-rights/
In an attempt to relieve overcrowding, California is now exporting some of its 170,000 inmates to privately run corrections facilities as far away as Tennessee.http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/06/11/AR2008061103458.html?hpid=topnewsInteresting.

That's cool how you referenced a case.
I'm so far from the end of my tether right now that I reckon I could knit myself some socks with the slack.
