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

I so agree it's the best idea ever! Prison should be rehabilitating not caged like animals! This would be the best thing ever!! Having a family is what lifes about we should all have a choice to stay together not apart! It's punishment for the whole family being apart! Children need both parents regardless the situation! Early release and getting good people out back in society not keeping them years months is enough punishment unless they choose to be a non family type ! Peace love and happiness I pray everyone in prisions change and get out and stay out forever and the younger generation don't break laws and are all about doing right !! God bless America and absolutely yes to conjugal visits and overnights!!!

Its already hard enough on families that are affected by a prison sentence. The process for visitation, although is understandable, is tedious creating even more aggravation. Spouses should be allowed contact visitation, they are married. Most inmates incarcerated in the federal prison system are non-violent offenders. The reason the federal inmate population has tripled over the years. There are people who get more time for drug offenses than murderers, rapists, etc..To be thanked by the mass incarceration from the "war on drugs". If you have any kind of intelligence you would be aware that its a loss outdated cause. There will always be drugs in society. Violence is not coming from drugs, its happening because America fails to open their eyes to the real problem....people are released from prison guess what, they have families too, they cant find work even though they participated in training programs while in prison, no one wants to give them a second chance, therefore they return to a lifestyle they know just so they can provide for their families...it doesnt take a genuis to see this. The prison system is crap. Children are left behind, wives, husbands, etc with the financial burden of trying to continue providing. Believe me I know, its hard on me and I have 4 degrees and teach public school. I can barely afford food, I make too much money for assistance and not enough to make ends meet. The least the government could do is permit contact visits. The inmates are serving their time, why punish the whole family. These inmates are not just numbers they are husbands, brothers, fathers, uncles...they are human, and in the eyes of the Lord and Savior, they are sons and should be treated as the golden rule..do unto others as you would have done unto you.

Conjugal visits should be brought back for the happiness of inmates and their spouses. For whatever the reasons of the visits being removed, I think that a second chance of allowing these visits back to inmates should be taken into consideration to all qualified inmates.
