ALL states should ban the cruel, greedy, MoFos! They are a disaster in every way, as you know by now if you read my articles. And I predict that the lawsuit filed by GEO Group (America’s second largest private prison company) will fail. Excerpts from the Article: On a recent Saturday, immigration advocates packed Washington Hall, shared tamales and discussed the various ways they planned to put an end to immgiration detention in...

You should know 1,2,3,4! All studies show that inmates with personal contact with loved ones are far less likely to re-offend. This is another financial squeeze on some of America’s poorest: families of inmates.
