You can search  the prisoners all you want. The guards and upper-management have been bought off by the biker gangs, Mexican cartels, Aryan brotherhood, the Bloods, the Crips, the list goes on and on. Sure a private prison company would like to take charge of it. It's big money and just think of the commission the politicians who brokered the deal.

Not with Con man Khanna... The only thing he had ever done is tried to remove powerful and amazing Democrats.

UC officials have threatened to increase tuition on students and their families if the system doesn't receive additional taxpayer funding. That puts California on a collision course with the future, and it's wrong.

The UC Board of Regents will meet to consider these tuition increases on November 19, and as a member of the board I will oppose them. But I need you with me, so add your name to our petition now and tell the University of California to reject the tuition increase!
Stop the tuition increase: ensure an affordable & accessible UC education today!

California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom issued the following statement on the University of California’s threat to increase tuition unless the state appropriates additional funds, thereby breaking its two-year old tuition-freeze agreement negotiated in 2013 in exchange for increased state funding:

"The University of California cannot bestow pay raises on its top earners with one hand, while continually taking more from students and their families with the other and deflecting criticism by laying its solution at the door of taxpayers. New funding must be tied to earnest and innovative attempts to reduce the university's cost structure and promote affordability and accessibility, not threats that reward the status quo."

Background
The proposed increase to students comes just two months after the same board approved up to 20percent increases to four chancellors and increased a base salary for a new chancellor by 23 percent of his predecessor. These decisions are not tied to performance or outcomes.

Lieutenant Governor Newsom believes that high-level solutions could be factored in to meet the growing costs. For instance, UC facilities system-wide could save $500,000 per contract if in-house employment was used over outside contractors; another $160 million could be saved if UC offered an Associate Degree to Transfer Program fromCalifornia Community Colleges, similar to existing program between community colleges and California State Universities; and millions could be saved if the failed IT implementation of UC Path was addressed. That program’s repayment costs have ballooned to $200 million over the next 20 years.

The University of California system has received numerous increases to financial resources including full funding of State’s Cal grant program;expansion of the middle-income fee grants covering one-half of tuition and fee increases for middle-income students from families earning up to $120,000; 20 percent increase in state funding as part of a multi-year stable funding plan; a 5 percent increase from the2014-15 state budget contingent a tuition freeze through 2016-17; and $50 million to promote innovative models of higher education at the campus level that result in more bachelor’s degrees, improved four‑year completion rates, and more effective transfers between the community colleges and the universities.
