The President Of The United States: Approve Conjugal Visits & Private Family Visit\'s For The Whole United State\'s Federal & State Prison

Messages Sent So Far
The President of The United States: Keeping Federal Inmates and their Families together approve Conjugal Visits & Family Visit's For The Whole United States. The best way to go about this is it will make it worthy for everyone at the same time if you approve this. Anyone that does a Family Visit or stay over night has to pay, it will be a great way to save people's live's and officer's at the same time. For once i ask you to take your time and read this because this is just not from me this is about everyone in the United States that miss there loved ones what would this do for the inmate's or the visitor's. First it will give them life again and not be so violent, second it will help with cost, third people will start doing what they have to do to come home. Inside the prison world it's hard to survive because you have to deal with so much and if you get time with your loved one and over night stays your more worried about staying out of trouble so you can have your visit and not get it taking away from you if you do get into trouble. I think this would be a great idea because it will help in funds and also give inmates more reason to work on their behavior issues as well as not giving up on themselves as they will have a chance to work toward to spending time with their children and wife. All I'm asking is for you to consider this not only for the inmates but for the families that have a long time to be without their loved ones.

Family is the most important thing when serving a sentence for a crime. With out communication by letters, phone calls, and visitation; Inmates would be more aggresive and violent against each other and officers. I believe that if state prisons allow conjugal visits for married inmates that it would be logical to allow those types of visits in federal prisons as well. This type of bonding promotes healthy relationship and moral. Federal inmates have to serve around 85% of their entire prison sentence. Where as state prisons usually serve 50-65% and get conjugal visits, and gain time for good behavior to get early release. Since this is not the case for federal inmates, then why not pass a bill to allow conjugal visit for federal inmates. The question of whether or not prison is intended to rehabilitate - rather than to merely punish - deserves the scrutiny of all Americans who might one day be affected by the answer. Yes, many agree that it would be a privilege to have these visits when incarcerated. For those who believe that isolation is a way of rehabilitation I would like to say there is absolutely nothing rehabilitating about restricting inmates from intimacy with their spouse. If the visits should require monitoring to be considered safe then, in my opinion, by all means monitor. Conjugal visits will allow for longer, faithful marriages and healthier relationships. Honestly I think that every inmates case is different and conjugal visits should be considered accordingly. Please sign this very important petition

My husband is currently in federal prison and this will give us the much needed family time to be with our loved ones. Plus it helps the inmates stay on their best behavior and it reduces crime and stress for the staff. So everyone will win in the end less crime, safer jails for inmates and staff.

It makes no sense that we have murderers, rapists, child abusers in state prisons with much more privileges than some of these inmates in federal prisons for non violent crimes! I still don't understand why conjugal visits are not allowed in federal prisons. It's been heartbreaking being away from my husband & I stand behind this petitions. It hurts everyone!
