I wrote the Governor and several people regarding this horrific release of prisoners into the state…. God bless Doug LaMalfa!

May 10, 2021

I asked such questions as :Who will pay for housing and medical for them, are they going to ship them to different cities in Ca? Why didn’t we vote on this issue? Won’t this turn Susanville a ghost town if the prison is closed there?

Etc. Etc. Etc. I received from all the standard, “We will get back to you…..” with the exception of one person – our Congressman, Doug LaMalfa. He wrote a letter confirming his concerns too.

This will ruin California. We also support about 2 million illegal immigrants since we were declared a sanctuary state- I don’t remember voting on this issue. I am worried about my children and grandchildren, and ALL the children’s safety. This is Doug’s letter:

  Dear Mrs. O’Brien,

Thank you for contacting me regarding the closure of Susanville’s Correction Center. I appreciate you taking the time to share your views with me and your patience while waiting for a response.  As you might have guessed, I am extremely disappointed and concerned that the State CDCR, in what appears to be a surprise move made with no local or public input, will be closing the California Correctional Center in Susanville.  This decision comes as California is seeing a significant increase in crime due to poor policy decisions that have resulted in early release of felons and high recidivism. The reduced capacity resulting from this closure would require a troubling escalation in the housing of state prisoners within our county jails, further increasing costs on our overburdened local counties’ law enforcement. It’s already a crushing burden on the budgets of our county jails, which are ill-equipped to safely hold hardened criminals, as well as on our District Attorneys and courts.  As the California Correctional Center is a major feeder for fire camp trainees, our ability to train and make ready the crews to respond to future wildfire seasons is even more incapacitated. This closure would also hit Lassen County with a devastating blow by eliminating 1,080 high-paying jobs from the region. The California Correctional Center in Susanville and the trainees it sends to convict fire camps are an integral part of our public safety infrastructure, and I continue to urge state decisionmakers to reconsider this devastatingly poor decision. Since I am a federal representative, this issue falls outside of my jurisdiction, as CDCR is a state program. To that end, I encourage you to contact the state Assemblywoman, Megan Dahle or State Senator Brian Dahle, as they can advise you on how to help this cause so the CCC remains open.  Senator Brian Dahle                                                 Assemblywoman Megan Dahle
