The prison-industrial-complex has become big business in America. And they’ve become more powerful. And has to be stopped. Our citizens are threatened by a system that is incentivized to lock people up. It is very sinister. And both parties are beholden to that industry:
A class action lawsuit filed in federal court for the Middle District of Georgia alleges that a private prison company forced immigrant detainees to work for $1 per day just to obtain basic necessities, like toilet paper and toothpaste.
The suit claims that the nation’s largest private prison company, CoreCivic, is disregarding national anti-human trafficking legislation in its treatment of people detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
