Who Profits From Migrant Detention in the US?

It’s no secret that private, for-profit prison corporations have accumulated substantial wealth from the U.S. criminal justice system. But another, relatively unknown, aspect of their reach is their role in immigration detention in the U.S.
CoreCivic, founded in 1983 and formerly known as Corrections Corporation of America, is the largest private prison corporation in the world. The company owns and operates over 100 correctional and detention centers across the country.

Additionally, CoreCivic was the first company to design, build and operate a migrant detention facility in the U.S.

GEO, the second largest private prison organization in the world, is a Florida-based company specializing in privatized corrections, detentions and mental health treatment. It also operates both prisons and migrant detention centers in the U.S. and abroad.

Both companies are currently contracted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to build, design and operate migrant detention facilities across the country.
Seems they have a very profitable business based on human misery, and are working on keeping it that way. Their influence in government is exactly what one would expect from an entity getting rich from government contracts.

I couldn't get past your Fake News headline.

Migrants aren't held in detention in the US.

Criminal Aliens who enter this Country illegally are .... but, not migrants.

Oh the things the Sheeple believe.

CoreCivic is funded by BlackRock, which is considered a shadow bank, Vanderbilt University and Vanguard Investments.

These people are great at making money and no they don't care how they do it.

Their very first facility housed people awaiting decisions on immigration cases, in 1984.

Oh the things the Sheeple believe.
Asylum seekers are not "criminal aliens."
Aliens, documented or not, who commit crimes re prosecuted, just as they should be.
And, when they finish their sentence, those who are undocumented are deported.
Just as they should be.

No, the headline you don't want to admit is accurate is about criminals who exploit the taxpayers and children.

Wayfair tried to either provide free beds or enter some sort of contract to provide beds. They were blocked by boycotts by the Democrats and I can only assume, CoreCivic as well.

Mr. not,

if the illegals weren't swarming across the borders, these necessary facilities would not make any money at all.
