Unqualified GCTA returnees lose jobs, are detained for months

Part 2: Even if many are not heinous crime convicts, former inmates turn themselves in to the Correctional Institution for Women out of fear of the President. Administrative lapses make them worry they won’t be home for Christmas.

Part 1: Massive errors in record-keeping and ill-prepared facilities keep thousands in jail for months, and kill at least 4 convict returnees. They regret heeding the President's call.

Fault should also be attributed to those who crafted a law which was too passionate for the release of convicts... They forgot criminals like former Mayor Sanchez existed. If you'll read the law in its plain meaning, the old mayor should have been released.
