Default Private Prison Industry Moves Full Steam into Immigration Detention

Federal inspectors find nooses, ‘serious violations’ at ICE facility in California

The report focused on the Adelanto ICE Processing Center, which is overseen by Immigration and Customs Enforcement but operated by the GEO Group, one of the nation’s largest private prison contractors.

"ICE must ensure the Adelanto Center complies with detention standards to establish an environment that protects the safety, rights, and health of detainees," the report concluded. "Mitigation and resolution of these issues require ICE’s immediate attention and increased engagement with the center and its operations."

Big Money As Private Immigrant Jails Boom

The Trump administration wants to expand its network of immigrant jails. In recent months, Immigration and Customs Enforcement has called for five new detention facilities to be built and operated by private prison corporations across the country. Critics are alarmed at the rising fortunes of an industry that had fallen out of favor with the previous administration.

The two largest private corrections corporations, GEO Group and CoreCivic, each gave $250,000 to Trump's inaugural festivities.

Back in Conroe, Texas, a second GEO jail is now under construction. That facility will house 1,000 inmates at a cost to taxpayers of at least $44 million per year.
