On some days when the facility is nearly empty, as it was for a period in January, the government would be paying multiples more.” Why would the government give a handout like this to a private company? Perhaps it stems from the fact that CCA “has on its payroll a slew of former senior government officials,” who are—presumably—very well connected. Regardless of how CCA procured such a bargain, the real bottom line is that a civilized nation does not put asylum seekers behind bars and then try as hard as possible to deport them back to the deadly situations they are fleeing. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which bears the responsibility for immigration detention, would be wise to follow the lead the Department of Justice, which just announced it is no longer going to use private prisons.
