IMMIGRANTS ARE NOT FOR SALE
DREAMERS confront Southwest Ranches council members on proposed mega for-profit detention center in their town. This is the first time that elected officials from Southwest Ranches are questioned directly by immigrants about their plan to build what could be one of the largest immigration detention centers in the entire country, only for profit. The students offered to buy their representatives back!
Politicians and public officials in the state have made public their support for the facility, even if there is one only 30 miles away! CCA makes money every night an immigrant fills their bed spaces. Southwest Ranches constituents have accused their officials of “being in bed” with private prison lobbyist.
Private prisons have made more than $1 million in campaign contributions in Florida.
