no As long as it is a prison it should not be used for refugees. But if the prison is shut down, then yes.

yes Although I would prefer not, since my family was evacuated during the Haitian refugee situation, I do see the need for a place off shore for holding and processing refugees so as not to overrun the country. And you people who were never there have NO idea how well the refugees had/have it!!!
