The Import Biz: Arizona Mulls Resuming Shipment Of Inmates To Indiana

Prisonkeys Arizona prisoners could be on their way back to Indiana before long. The Associated Press reports:

"However, Arizona's shortage of beds puts it on the verge of sending more prisoners out of state as growth of the inmate population continues to jump each month, Schriro said.

"Arizona halted transfers of inmates to a prison in New Castle, Ind., just before an April 24 riot involving Arizona and Indiana prisoners but is close to deciding whether to send more, Schriro said.

"Repairs to the New Castle prison have been completed and, in another sign that the facility is returning to normal, Indiana authorities plan to lift restrictions on inmate movements, Schriro said. 'We are anxious for Indiana to succeed.'"
