AILA - Obama Administration Again Hands Families Over to Private Prison Company


AILA - Obama Administration Again Hands Families Over to Private Prison Company: Obama Administration Again Hands Families Over to Private Prison Company

AILA Doc No. 15091830 | Dated September 18, 2015

SAN ANTONIO, TX - Today, Catholic Legal Immigration Network (CLINIC), the American Immigration Council, Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES), and the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), partners in the CARA Family Detention Pro Bono Project, responded to the news that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) had awarded a private prison company the grant to establish a new case management alternative to detention initiative for families.

Jonathan Ryan, Executive Director of RAICES stated, "Based on how our staff and volunteers have seen GEO treat mothers and children incarcerated at their facility in Karnes City, Texas, this award seems to exemplify the uncaring and inhumane attitude the Obama Administration holds toward the mothers and children fleeing violence and persecution in Central America. The administration keeps finding ways to hand over control of a vulnerable population to a private prison company. We very much fear the end result will be harm to these families and their claims to protection under our laws."
