Congress must propose amendments on a variety of subjects including MASS INCARCERATION.  As we progress we the people must be able to control our government, by making our leaders listen to our demands and act for the people.. Once convicted of any crime by any court of law it becomes legal to enslave and dehumanize any person via  the 13th Amendment whereby it states, "  Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, EXCEPT as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction." This directly support the privitization of  prisons  who's corporations stand to make more money when more people are sentenced so they work hard to influence policy and push for harsher sentencing laws. A report from the Justice Policy Institute details how prison corporations use lobbyists, campaign contributions, and relationships with policymakers to further their own political agenda. For instance, the Corrections Corporation of America (CCA), the largest private prison company in the US, has spent $17.4 million on lobbying expenditures in the last 10 years and $1.9 million on political contributions.. These law makers then make laws that assist in mass incarceration... of minorities and immigrants...make your voice heard tell Congress to amend the 13th amendment
