Mexico is not looking for money! Citizens of Mexico are looking for a better life, better then what they are being offered in Mexico. Some people are looking to get away from the violence! Sadly we do have some people who do come here and are criminals and ruin it for the rest of the people who are looking to come here and better their lives! But they're not the problem here! you see plenty of other people who are not from Mexico who are causing just as much harm to the county, state, country etc! Everyone needs to GET OVER this whole alien crap!

It's time america faces the fact that without the
cartels protecting our southern boarder we
would already have been attacked by Terrorists.
The cartels aren't going to let the routes to
be used as they would loose Billions of dollars.
Building a wall is a joke.Might as well give money to mexico as they will do anything for
money.Just dump millions of dollars out of a plane every month over Mexico and they will stay home.

Stop looking like a Russian Goon squad with
military vehicles roaming the streets.
You are what you project.
High stepping in parades would also be a downer.

Great point by "good job, well done" below. The answer to that is jobs.

The CV jail is a big employer. And a lot of people working there have to commute over from Prescott.

By building a new jail in Prescott, it will create lots of new employment opportunities over there.

And not here.

Problem is, it sounds like the Commissioners are set on building a new jail in Prescott come hell or high water. To do that they'll either raise your property tax or implement a sales tax increase.

Since a third of sales taxes are generated by those living outside of the county, it will be cheaper for us to go the sales tax route.

If the County is going to build it anway and can't be dissuaded, then it's hard to argue with that logic.

Article comment by: Good job, well done. And no one Was Injured. But why the YCSO Jail?

"Those arrested were transported to the Yavapai County Jail in Camp Verde for processing and holding for transportation to a Federal Holding facility. The YCSO Camp Verde facility is designated a 287(g) facility in partnership with ICE."

Yavapai County tax payers should not have to foot the bill for another jail. YCSO wants the taxpayers $$ to build a new jail, yet at the same time, are making $$
renting out beds to various other agencies. Get out of the bed renting business and there will be plenty of beds available.
