EVERY jail in England has been infiltrated by alien-obsessed Scientologists, it emerged today. Followers of the wacky "church" claim to have signed up thousands of cons to a bizarre "rehab" programme behind bars. But officials freely admit there is no way they can STOP the cult's vast recruitment drive — because it does not "threaten" national security. A wing of weird religion, called Criminon, today revealed it had targeted lags in all 139 prisons in England and Wales. It offers "distance-learning" ...

This is why I introduced House Bill 358, promoting a secure drug treatment option. As an ex-drug addict testified before the House Committee on Finance, "Drug addicts are stuck ...
