Private ICE Detetention Moratorium in Florida

109
Supporters

The State of Florida should put a moratorium on private detention centers preventing municipalities or government entities from entering into IGSA/DPA's with private prison companies.  Like Illinois SB 1064.  Stop the proliferation of private ICE detention centers. Stop the rape and human rights abuses.  We don't need any more detention beds and by allowing more of these facilities to be built it puts more profits into the private prison industry enabling them to push their agenda, getting their bills passed that will feed their profits.  JUST SAY NO TO PRIVATE IMMIGRATION DETENTION CENTERS!

The State of Florida should put a moratorium on private detention centers preventing municipalities or government entities from entering into IGSA/DPA's with private prison companies. Like Illinois SB 1064 and a similar bill in Vermont.
Stop the proliferation of private ICE detention centers. Stop the rape and human rights abuses.

We don't need any more detention beds and by allowing more of these facilities to be built it puts more profits into the private prison industry enabling them to push their agenda, getting their bills passed that will feed their profits. JUST SAY NO TO PRIVATE IMMIGRATION DETENTION CENTERS!
