Inspired by McDonald’s, the sheriff of Arizona’s Maricopa County on Monday had a sign made that touts the fact that more than 430,000 inmates have been “served” by his controversial “Tent City” jail.

“Why would anyone call for an end to this program and the closure of Tent City?” Sheriff Joe Arpaio said in a statement announcing the sign. “Tent City makes room for inmates who otherwise might be released to the streets due to overcrowded jails. It’s one of the best things to have happened in the local criminal justice system.”

More than 430,000 inmates have “served” their time in Tent City, which began in 1993 and is made up of Korean War tents, the department said.
