Brave New Foundation Video: Immigrants For Sale

Reported by Ellen - May 14, 2011 -

Our friends at Brave New Foundation's Cuentame, have a new video called Immigrants for Sale about how private prisons profit from anti-immigrant laws. You can watch it after the jump.

Axel Caballero, Cuentame's campaign manager wrote on Huffington Post

Just last year the private prison industry secured close to $5 billion through state and government elicited contracts of which an increasing percentage is attributed to migrant detention facilities and bed spaces. An NPR report outlined how CCA aims to translate the anti-immigrant rhetoric and political void into a long-lasting cash drive -- believing that immigrants will provide a fresh influx of 'guests' in their less then onerous 'hotel' cells. Even worse, CCA founder Tomas Beasly once called his scheme 'more profitable' than selling burgers or cars -- a clear indication that any sense of justice in the prison industry will be forever trumped by cash flows and profit margins.
