I loved this post because I think a federal bill should be passed regarding this issue. Government assistance should not be available to criminals. If a citizen has outstanding warrants and is getting government money to buy food and housing, why would that person turn themselves in? The way our government functions today is outrageous and full of loopholes. Good to see NC stepped up and is taking matters into their own hands. A federal bill like this one would help in bringing down our outstanding national debt!
