Our Corrupt, Evil Prison-Industrial Complex

Private Prisons Are Getting Rich By Abusing Illegal Immigrants

Warehousing undocumented immigrants and drug offenders as a profit center.  In my previous life in commercial banking, we acquired another bank and took over a portfolio of loans to private prisons. 

After one bank meeting down in Houston, I told my boss that if we were keeping these clients, he'd have to find someone else to work on these accounts. 
"What sort of criminal is the target of most federal prosecutions? Mobsters? Bank robbers? No: illegal immigrants. And where do they go? To private prisons, for whom America's immigration system is a giant profit center."
